I haven’t been able to breathe all day.
Being introverted really sucks, especially since this is only day three. And also having extreme emotions manifest as physical pain hasn’t been fun either.
We went to Nürnberg. What did we do there? We spent the morning learning about the trials. We stopped at the field where Hitler had huge rallies. We spent the afternoon at the museum. Because that’s all Deutschland is: Hitler.
Just the idea that we were looking at this stuff made it feel like there was a heavy weight on my chest. Walking inside the museums made me feel like there was always a hand around my throat. Excuse me if standing where the man who single-handedly ordered the death of over 6 million people gave a speech isn’t on my bucket list.
You can’t laugh at this stuff. You can’t point to a picture of a saluting crowd and say, “Look; it’s us.” Because it’s not. That was deception, manipulation, and betrayal to a country and her people; and death to those who resided in her.
Tomorrow we to to Dachau, and I’m really grateful to be here in this beautiful land; but there’s more to Deutschland than WWII. I really feel like I can’t take anymore. Show me other things München has to offer.

THEIR. FEET. LOOK. LIKE. BEANS.
my 6-year-olds were upset because i taught them ‘television’ and they were like NO TEACHER IT’S A TV
so i wrote ‘television’ on the board and highlighted “T” and “V” and they reacted like i’d just taught them the secrets of the universe
