I went to a vigil in Nashville to remember and mourn the lives taken in New Zealand. I met a Muslim single mom who is coming over to dinner soon with her son.
Thought I’d ask on here if anyone else has been to a vigil for the victims. If so I’d love to see your pictures, videos, stories etc.
@audreyassad Well, I've made myself vulnerable in different threads and want to make sure I offer support back to anyone who expresses something in response to them.
So it's on my mind when I'm not on it, but that's a result of my own choices and actions and my care for others. So it feels personal and individual.
The interaction here is certainly better than twitter has been in a long time, if ever.
@audreyassad I come back to it daily for the intelligent adult conversation. (SAHM here 😁) but while other social media platforms leave me empty, my Liturgist community here fills me and inspires me. 💜
@audreyassad very much so - there's no puppet master here, either a person or an algorithm, turning attention span into a commodity. There will still be the draw of taking part in a community, feeling of missing out perhaps, but these probably aren't bad things.
migrant issues / Facebook fundamentalists
Mastodon Liturgists Instance says yes.
I wrote a song about migrant mothers and babies being separated at the border. https://t.co/kBufLn0Ojg?amp=1
Predictably, Facebook responses include accusations that I don’t care about American children being safe, that migrant parents are “in it for the money”....which is honesty the most mind boggling of all responses to me.
I try but I just can’t understand how anybody reacts that way. Is empathy dead?
9w1♥️ I am held by Being at all times and I believe you are too.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
