When I enter my e-scouting bubble, nothing much exists outside of mule deer, terrain, and hunting with my girlfriend in the fall. When I exit my bubble and am reminded of the volume of suffering, anger and divisiveness in the world, it’s difficult to know what to say. Would it just be some gross, self-congratulatory, “look at how virtuous I am” post which would detract from the point? Or is it better to just like or retweet a post from someone who really knows what they are talking about? It’s not that you ignore or don’t care. Good people have existed long before social media liked them, and finding positive things that will make my interactions with people in my community more unifying is probably more important than the perfect post when things are bad.
This is maybe my most incoherent ramble, but I think it reflects the inability of many to know what to say in light of Covid-19 and the death of George Floyd.
