In these dark times  
Look for the helpers.

Thanx to Making Light.

A very good article; thank you.

Even better, perhaps, to try to _be_ one of the helpers...
Do Something

If the world seems cool to you,
Kindle fires to warm it!
Let their comfort hide from you
Winters that deform it.
Hearts as frozen as your own
To that radiance gather;
You will soon forget to moan,
"Ah! The cheerless weather!"

If the world's "a vale of tears,"
Smile till rainbows span it;
Breathe the love that life endears--
Clear from clouds to fan it.
Of your gladness lend a gleam
Unto souls that shiver;
Show them how dark sorrow's stream
Blends with hope's bright river.

(From The Humbler Poets, 1888)

I am, to say the least, no poet, but there are two things I'm telling people.
We're in this for the long haul. You can't do everything and you shouldn't try. What you must do, as a prerequisite to everything else, is take care of yourself. Take a day off, or a week off, when you need it, without guilt.
And remember these three (really easy to remember) URLs: house.gov and senate.gov list all members with complete contact info, and all committees and subcommittees; and congress.gov lists all legislation, text and amendments, sponsors and cosponsors, committee assignment, and action.
