Are We In A Trance?

Trance seems like the most perfect prompt of the day. So I thank you for that Daily Post!

I say perfect, because doesn’t it feel like we have all collectively been in a trance of late?

I’m not sure if it’s the upcoming Solar Eclipse or what. But there has just been a weird vibe.

The definition of trance goes like this:

a half-conscious state characterized by an absence of response to external stimuli, typically as induced by hypnosis or entered by a medium.

Whether it’s my weird workplace or what’s going on in the world … it just feels very out of the ordinary as if we are in a trance.

That’s the only thing that can explain the overall feeling after the neo-nazi, white supremacist activities in Charlottesville, Va. And really the world. People thinking they are more superior than others. We are in 2017. There was a whole World War about this kind of activity. My grandfather fought in that war. And now? It’s being discussed by people as OK. Our president says these supremacists are good people? What the actual fuck.

There is nothing good about feeling more superior over someone because of race or religion or sex.

Some probably feel this is my delicate, white girl privilege showing, as people having been dealing with this time of supremacy for decades. Sure. But it’s never been condoned as seemingly Ok by a United States President. 45 has done that though. And I find that so disturbing. How this has continued without more outrage from his political party, that holds all the control in our government, is perplexing.

We must be in a trance. Otherwise it wouldn’t be so outrageous for our leaders to be human and stand up for what’s right in the world. Supremacy is wrong. Full stop. Our leaders must come together to collectively snap us out of this or things are just going to get worse. ┬áStep up!
