Today, we try to bring awareness to post-traumatic stress disorder. As a shared culture, we have spent centuries noting it—often in soldiers, to the exclusion of everyone else—and proceeding to marginalize the victims in various ways. We seem to finally have our first broad understanding of the issues involved and treatments beyond hiding from the world.
I feel thankful to not share in this disorder, but we shouldn’t really ignore any issue affecting nearly seven percent of the population, and so I wrote a bit about the issues involved when describing my approach to content advisories, around this time last year.
…And now I don’t have a segue. I also haven’t gotten much done, this week.
I still have plans to return to Salavi, and will eventually work in a new idea that has come to me.
