Thoughts and prayers

So there’s widespread mockery of posting thoughts and prayers on social media. There’s reason behind that.

But what do you do when internaitonal politics or natural disasters hurt millions? I don’t have the United States of Matt to deploy pressure. I can’t get Cory Gardner or Diana DeGette to respond to email. A little sympathy for the people who post thoughts and prayers would be nice, because earthquakes don’t care and there’s not a lot we can do about them.

No answers, so let me end on a positive note. The weather is nice, and the Denver foodbank is doing good work. I don’t think goodness is wasted ever.
