things that make me want to give the fuck up

A Marine was murdered.

A pregnant Marine was murdered.

A pregnant Marine was murdered, by her alleged rapist.

A pregnant Marine was murdered, by her alleged rapist, probably for having dared to report the rape.  (Which report, of course, was shamefully handled.)

And, I swear to God, CNN wants me to know that the fetus wasn’t born alive.

This woman, who put her life on the line for her country, only to face an enemy that wore her uniform.  Are we even going to pretend women are worth anything?  Are we even going to fucking fake it?  I can only imagine the hell this woman went through, I can only pray for some small ray of solace to her family, I can only refuse to forget her story, and all the ones we don’t hear.
