Day 6: While many books have made me cry, these four broke my heart. I‘ve reread each many times (I use Splendid Suns, The Road, and Harold Fry in my classes) and they still make me cry. Powerful writing that explores the human condition and the power of connections, whether it is set in a war torn country, a postapocalyptic world, a Parisian flat, or an English roadside, will always touch our minds and souls.

Vansa Ooh how did I leave out !! Your students are very lucky you're using such incredible books! 9mo

I only read for 3 hrs. last mo. I've started this post in my head so many times, but couldn't bring myself to get the words out here...but I'm ready to fill in my Litsy family about why I've been away. On Aug. 5th I had to have my partner/boyfriend of 7&1/2 years rushed to the hospital. He had a huge blood clot that cut off his oxygen and unfortunately his brain was too severely damaged, and we had to make the hard decision to let him go. 💔👇🏼

Bookworm54 I'm so sorry to hear that 😔 Hope you are doing okay 💕💕💕 5y
eanderson Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry!!! 💕💕 5y
Megnogged Rob, the love of my life, passed away on Aug. 12th. My life has and never will be the same. I miss him every minute of every day and still am just taking things day by day. I'm finally able to pick up a book again. (I was reading when it happened on the 5th). I know he wouldn't want me to give up something I love so much. #heartbroken "...the ones that love us never really leave us." 5y

I have to put my phone away. I can't fight trolls and I can't reason with bigots on FB and Twitter. Thank you Litsy for understanding how I feel. I know y'all are probably feeling very similar. I love you all and I can't thank you enough for being a safe space for me. I'm going to read, watch tennis, cuddle with my cat, and hope when I wake something good has happened. #resist ✊🏼

Born.A.Reader I'm sure I'm not the only one that's noticed, as of late, that it seems the majority of us Littens are against the horrible happenings in the US. That we are intelligent enough to realize hate, bigotry and racism when we see it. ...unlike the half of my country that I'm ashamed to say, elected a certain person... I come to Litsy to be cheered by all of your postive posts and thoughts. So thank you, everyone. 😊😊 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage You are not alone. 😘 6y
Joybishoptx I pretty much stay off Facebook because it just depresses me. Take care of yourself 💕💕💕 6y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Take care of yourself tonight, you need to refresh for another day. But let me share some good news with you... I live in a small town in center(ish) PA, Trump-land galore.... but my library hosted a Social Justice discussion about the Coates book and had more people show up than they had seats for...I estimate over 100 people came. The organizer joked that he didn't realize that many people lived in the town. So even in Trumplandia, people... 6y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...are starting to seek out others that have similar problems with the way things are going. I hope that helps you feel a bit better and less alone. I know it did me. #ImWithYou (edited) 6y
JSW We are in this together and you don't have to do it all yourself. Rest. We've got this for you when you're ready to come back. ❤❤ 6y
Texreader Nice artwork. Reminds me of this quote: In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist; And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist; And then they came for the Jews, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew; And then . . . they came for me ... 6y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I'll also say that I'm old enough to remember that when I discussed things like marriage equality in my little corner of the world it was given the side-eye during my college years. But little by little the discussion shifted over time as more & more people began to come out, not out as in being LGBTQ, but out in support of supporting them. Sometimes it takes knowing a bunch of people agree with your secret thoughts to enable you to express them. 6y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...so take your time, refresh yourself, and then go right back to saying what you think is right. You might never convince the other side, but there are plenty of people in the middle watching both sides now and deciding who makes more sense to them. You never know who might be influenced by your speaking your truth. 👍 6y
Alfoster Yes, Yes...Richard Cory poem!!!!😍 6y

Tamarity I treated myself by deactivating my fb account and it feels soooo good! I just check CBC occasionally (because I'm Canadian) to stay updated. I kept fb msg so I can stay in touch with friends and family. 6y
kspenmoll Sending you energy & just know so many feel the same at different times - the ACLU filing & court stay tonight is such a source of hope- sorry if this is quick & disjointed; tired. Hugs to you & all responding here. #resist 6y
ReadingSusan I am right they'd with you! I deleted Facebook and Twitter from my phone last Friday and only added them today which was terrible timing on my part. I am hoping you had a relaxing time tonight and are refreshed and recharged. Don't feel bad about needing to unplug for awhile. #selfcare (edited) 6y
AmyG It's inspiring to be in a community of well-read, informed people. Knowledge is power. My thoughts with all who do not feel safe in this country. There are many good people who support you and are willing to fight for the rights of all. #resist 6y
Weaponxgirl Take care of yourself and try to remember that those people are very loud because they know that they haven't got a leg to stand on in the end. 6y
Nuwanda Tried to talk sense to a cousin of mine today. She claims to want conversation because she feels attacked as a conservative, but then she told me today to keep my opinions on my own thread, deleted her original post where I commented, and then put up a post saying, "You can't fix stupid." I silently agreed. Stay strong! We are here to support each other for the long haul! 6y
[DELETED] 1409720085 I love Litsy as a safe place. I don't participate in a lot of social media but I live in a very red state so I feel a bit isolated sometimes. Just trying to keep spreading my love. 6y
Suet624 These comments are so beautiful. This is going to be a marathon and one by one we will take our place in the race. Rest now. Your time/action will come and you'll know it by its urgency. 6y

I don't know if it's the fact that it's Christmas, which was his FAVORITE time of year, or seeing everyone's photos of their pets, but I am having one of THOSE days. It will be a year in February but it still hurts like it was yesterday. Quick, someone tell me a joke. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
