I want my girls to know the world is complicated, and political ads are too

I always knew that, at some point, I would take a break, but I didn’t know when. I’m a bit vague. I was uncertain of where I was with relationships, and in the work life, we all are uncertain.

In 2019, we have an unfairness to acknowledge and care about.

I have a problem with political ads and I’m trying not to say more. That is so painful for me, because I do want the girls to understand that the world is complicated and the politicians are too.

Of course, I have the recognition that life is complex, and in that kind of world, our job, as parents, is to help create a world that is humane.

When we watch something like Unite the Right, or hear things like white nationalists, as responsible as we are as adults, it is difficult to turn away.
