It’s far too easy to forget that rose-coloured glasses are a distortion of the real world. So when I read about mad shit like this it doesn’t seem as bad to be living in the US. The only things I really miss are my family and friends [and highly accessible Indian food]. Other than that, we’re all surrounded by maniacs. We’re also all within a short ride of someone sane so it doesn’t seem so bad. Let’s be happy about the sane people.
