How Toxic Masculinity Contributes to Mass Shootings

America is mourning over the latest mass shooting incident at a Parkland Florida high school that has left 17 people dead. Though unfortunately this is nothing new and seems to have no end as gun control laws have yet to be dealt with.

Her work, I really think her workIs finding what her real work isAnd doing it,Her work, her own work,Her being human,Her being in the world.

Ursula K. Le Guin

What is OUR work?  The work of the feminine...the work of this gender... the meaning to the activities of our lives, day in and day out.

My mind runs to the measuring of my life by the quality of relationships; family, children, friends, coworkers and the richness felt by my personal soul when I give back to the world.

But these would simply be the by-product of an even deeper work, a work that is constant and continual and has been there my entire life.  From the moment that I get out of bed, throughout my days, into my evenings; over holidays, Saturdays, Sundays; in times of joy, in times of strife, in times of quiet reflection or chaos;  that deeper work is the discovery, re-discovery and re-birth of me along the way.

My work is to be a woman on my own terms and of my own definition.  My work is to understand that the woman I was at 19, at 32, at 45, at 55 and on and on will be ever-growing, continually developing, always learning and re-defining the meaning of me.  And it's my work to persevere in it.

And so, my work, is to understand, accept, support, educate and know, really know, the person who is me. To question, seek answers, feel the energy of the world and claim what I want from it, and, in turn encourage other women to come along with me.  And, as I travel on this life journey of defining and knowing myself, of being a part of and doing the job of living, I know that my work is to make my own personal contribution and share what I've learned with the world so you, they, whomever, too can take what is needed from my life and do your work.
