these are real consequences

1) A friend of various friends ([personal profile] tam_nonlinear / [tumblr.com profile] tam-nonlinear) killed herself Wednesday in despair over the idea of losing her health insurance.

2) On Monday, one of SteelyKid's third-grade classmates told another classmate that they wanted Trump to win because black people and women would have to leave the state. I talked to a parent of the classmate last night, who said they hadn't slept since.

I can't think of anything to add to this. Just, these things that I personally know of actually happened, and I needed to bear witness.
