I woke up this morning and my mom told me they overturned Roe v. Wade. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m scared for the way the future of the world is headed. If this is how things are going to be; if basic human rights are going to be taken away from people, then I don’t want to be a part of this world. Sometimes it just feels like everything’s burning around me, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Is this just me or anyone else feel like this?

You are not alone, IceGalaxy. This decision ignores the will of a majority of Americans. You are not alone – far from it!

And ... "The Constitution provides a number of paths by which Congress can restrain and discipline a rogue court. It can impeach and remove justices. It can increase or decrease the size of the court itself (at its inception, the Supreme Court had only six members). It can strip the court of its jurisdiction over certain issues or it can weaken its power of judicial review by requiring a supermajority of justices to sign off on any decision that overturns a law. Congress can also rebuke the court with legislation that simply cancels the decision in question." – Jamelle Bouie, NYTimes, June 25

Thank you. I feel like this too. Or maybe there are things we can/should do about it, but I just wish we didn't have to (partly because making change is a lot of work but, WAY more importantly, because there are so many people already impacted by all the world's problems and even if we change things for the future, they will still have had to go through so much undeserved, unjust pain).
