Fair~Weather Friends

Let me tell you when you learn who your real friends are, in times of controversy; My now former friend of 16 years, who was my bridesmaid, hosted my bridal shower, and lent me her deceased mother’s earrings for my wedding, someone whom I supported emotionally when she crossed over the edge to a nervous, suicidal breakdown… a Jewish Latina who is easily perceived as “white” just blocked me because I had the nerve to openly call her out on her silence during this uprise about the violence towards black people. In her defense, my timing ended up being inappropriate which I acknowledged after she brought to my attention that she had flown to the side of a friend whose brother had a massive stroke and was also making a care package for someone else in ICU— all loving, honorable things. I stood by what I said, however, because this person, a writer, no longer in the news business or with restrictions on voicing her opinion… with a large social media platform to influence others has always stayed silent during previous crises when she didn’t have the excuse of being distracted or newly engaged. All she said was that she chooses to use her platform for personal sharing which yes, is her business to do, but like I said to her, “Remember, after they come for me, they’ll come for you.” I would think that someone who has ties to the holocaust would get that. I guess, not. Have fun in your bubble. Let’s hope that it doesn’t burst… or maybe, it should for a reality check. Ciao!
