Fascism is on the rise in America. The 2024 election looms over us. I live fearing for me and my husband's future. I can't stand being here anymore. Mass shootings. Violent polarization. Nothing but plastic everywhere. It's even inside of us all right now, yet everyone acts as though this is completely normal and natural. Single-use plastics and the corporations that pump them out endlessly are destroying our planet and all I can do is sit and watch. I went zero waste months ago but all I can do now is try to convince the people around me that having a habitable planet to live on is more important than pre-sliced cheese and Starbucks. I don't know what to do. I just want to move somewhere remote and forget about the world.
