I may catch holy hell for this, but seriously.   Step away, take a deep breath and calm down.

Speaking as someone who has been a victim of both - The word "Police" is just as polarizing and traumatic as the word "Rape".

There will always be "someone is wrong on the internet".

There will always be someone who disagrees with you.

There will always be tensions and traumas and dramas in life.

Step away for a moment and think about the things in your life you love.

Take a deep breath and be grateful for what you do have.

I love my friends, all of you.

Is this one of those times where I am glad I am not on Facebook?

Unfortunately it is here, not on FB. :(

Oh dear. I seem to be (mostly) out of the loop. I am not sorry about that.

Thank you.

My reaction to the police is flat out terror. So yes, polarizing and traumatic might apply...

I've had many many encounters with Police for varying reasons.

The one exceptionally helpful and supportive encounter I had with them doesn't even start to cover the 4 really bad experiences.

This is sound advice and I appreciate you saying it. I'm hoping everyone can slow down and step back a bit (and I need to do that myself, too).

The trouble with Facebook is that there are too many trolls. Much prefer LJ.
