Holy shit. Holy shit.

Take this viral, Tumblr. Signal boost.

COMPLETELY worth the read.

My husband left for work at 7 AM. It is now 9 PM and he won’t be home again for two more hours from his second job today. I spent yesterday at the emergency room. I have been waiting for two years for Social Security. I do not understand. How much more do we have to work to show you that your call for jobs isn’t enough? You must also be concerned for the whole nation, and whether we eat, and whether we have medicine. You must care if a hardworking, devoted family like mine is unable to survive after investing their best efforts. How many jobs do you expect every American to take? Three? Four?”

Hero fucking status

Beautiful.

And that letter writer would be my friend Sarah… she’s amazing.
