I have been thinking a lot about how it is easy to feel powerless in the world in the face of so many bad things. I have also been thinking about how we are more powerful than we think, and so I wrote a book about it.
If you would like to read more ideas about this issue, some folks at FindingSteadyGround have put together an incredibly helpful list of tools we can use to empower ourselves in these difficult times.

My name is Shelly Johnson, and I am a writer and philosopher with a Ph.D. in philosophy. One of my primary personal and philosophical interests is how we can learn to love ourselves and each other better in order to cultivate personal and political resilience. I teach ethics and a variety of other courses at a local college. I am the author of the blog Love is Stronger. I am also the author of three logic and critical thinking books for high school and middle school: _Argument Builder_, _Discovery of Deduction_ (co-author), and _Everyday Debate_, published by Classical Academic Press.

I LOVE this blog! I planned to share it in my Facebook group, but it is being blocked as going “against Community Standards”. I put a few of your pages up for review, but boy…someone is out to get you.
KEEP SHINING YOUR LOVE!! So many need it!
Lisa, what an amazing note. Thank you! Yes, I know FB is blocking me right now. Good grief! It frustrates me and makes me laugh, too. I am working on fixing it right now. I am currently turning all my FB posts into note form on my own FB page, and I am making them public there. You can share those notes. I have one coming later today. Here is my FB page. So glad to meet you.
