1damnit im madEvery third bad law in this country is somehow phrased as “To save the innocent children…”

Well, as usual, we are doing a shitty job.  

I am the daughter of a Korean War veteran, who self-medicated with alcohol and kept us in an uproar of midnight movings to escape bill collectors.  I am the wife of a Viet Nam veteran who does not drink, but practiced retail therapy and avoided his marriage and family for most of the last three decades.

I’ve fought depression and suicidal impulses since age ten.  And how many veterans are there coming back impacted by the most recent pair of wars?

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
