This is a 5 Year Journal post. The goal is to answer a simple journal prompt each day of the year as a real record of daily life in this moment. 

January 12: What makes you mad?

When people say that children are a gift from God. It feels like a cold slap in the face to those of us who haven't been so privileged. Why aren't we gift-worthy? And why is the 15-year-old pothead who hangs out in front of the city library, smoking as she pats her swollen belly - why is she gift-worthy?

Yep. Wanna make me mad? Just call children a gift from God. That'll do it.
