Last night I tried to read George Orwell’s 1984. I had to put it down after six pages. I shouldn’t have read it in bed. Nightmares aren’t supposed to happen in real life. Our daily news shouldn’t be a replay of pages from Orwell’s book. Yet, since November 9, 2016, …

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. G. Orwell, 1984
America, the country of my birth and life since 1968, died on January 20, 2017. All of the history lessons about The Constitution, the fight for equal rights under the law, and our reputation as a powerful world leader, disappeared when T***p was inaugurated.
I started reading George Orwell’s 1984 last weekend. It wasn’t on our reading list in high school. As an English major at Rutgers, I focused on British Literature. However, after this election and his first few days in office, I knew it was time.
All it took was the first few pages to see America’s future under T***p’s administration. Basically…WE ARE SCREWED! Our only hope is mass organized resistance. We have to resist every attempt to tear apart our Constitution and democratic government. We need to resist the racism and bigotry promoted by this administration.

I suggest you grab a copy or download the digital version. We need to be prepared. Stay strong!
