If their family wouldn't allow it and they have the money, tell them I am happy to buy it for them. I might get sued by some angry parents, but it's not like I have any assets they can take and better that than a single American girl I could have helped be forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy.
I am having a really hard time processing this election. Mr. Rogers tells little kids who are scared when bad things happen to look for the helpers, focus on the good. In this case, I think we have to take it a step further and BE the helpers, and as a white-presenting male you have the ability to help people being harrassed just by showing up and making it awkward. YOU ARE DUMBLEDORE'S ARMY! Don't compromise your own safety, and ALWAYS respect law enforcement, but if no "helpers" are around and you can safely intervene, know that I will support you, and tell any other adults involved, up to and including the principal, that I'm proud of your actions. I'm entirely okay with it if, like me, you kneel for the National Anthem and refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
I also want you to know that I don't expect you to agree with me and it's also okay if you want to keep your head down and focus on your own problems. You are at an age where it's natural to be self-centered, and you're still a child even if you are six feet tall. It's not easy to go against peers, especially for a teenager. But remember that all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing, and unfortunately you're going to grow to manhood in a time where there's a whole lot of evil (and I already know you're good).
I love you, and I can't promise everything will be okay but I CAN promise that I'll do everything I can to get our family through this, and we're no strangers to adversity in this house so I think we're better-equipped than many to survive this presidency. I mean, we survived Little Child's baby years, right? ❤️ Mom
