Fellow Treasured Earthling…you have a choice before you.
You can stand out on the sidewalk holding your IGNORANT, CALLOUS, HATEFUL, RACIST SIGNS, hissing and chanting, “GO HOME! YOU ARE UNWELCOME! YOU DON’T BELONG HERE! WE HATE YOU!”
You can open your minds, your hearts, and your arms…and do this.
THIS being treat your fellow human beings — your fellow human beings, mind you, who have been through UNIMAGINABLE FUCKING SUFFERING and have lost EVERYTHING THEY OWN, including their beloved homeland and way of life — with DIGNITY, KINDNESS, COMPASSION, RESPECT, GENEROSITY…and LOVE.
Please understand that these people — especially these little children — will never forget this moment. They will remember it ALL OF THEIR LIVES…and they will carry the memory of it in their little hearts always…and the astonishing KINDNESS and LOVE shown them that day will multiply exponentially inside them and then radiate outwards in a million different ways — traveling like shimmering light through both humanity…and infinity.
I say to you now — and I am SERIOUS AS A GODDAMNED HEART ATTACK — if you choose the former…
FUCK YOU. UNFRIEND/UNFOLLOW ME NOW.
I choose LOVE.
Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and hipmama.com. She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
