You know you had an awful end of day when you receive a message back from a friend and that it makes your eyes watering. And then you wish you can really hug them.

I think it’s time for me to get away from internet for tonight. Too much feels right now.

"The Clover Among the Poppies" by The Yankee Countess

After the announcement of the War, Sybil knew she couldn’t sit idly by as was expected of ladies of her station.  With the help of her cousin Isobel, she attends a nurse’s college in York, but she wants to become a “proper nurse”, and so trains for a great many months, and works in several hospitals, both in York and at Downton.  In November of 1916, Sybil has a chance to go and serve near the front lines in France, and so accompanying her cousin Matthew, heads into the heat of battle, not prepared for the horror and devastation she will encounter, or for the unwelcome advances by several British officers.  It is also while there that she meets Tom Branson, an Irish ambulance driver, who challenges Sybil’s mind with his political beliefs and anti-war views, as well as her heart with his passionate spirit.

I just get back home from work and learn the news. I was so shocked. How can someone do this? We’re really leaving in a mad and mean world. My thoughts are now with all these women and their family.

I first read it about on twitter but didn’t know Jesse was one of them.

Fortunately, I’m following the right people and didn’t see any reblog and didn’t go to the Jesse and Downton tag today because of some of you in the fandom posted a warning. So thank you for this.

I really wish we could find a way to show our support.

Now, done with the topic. The asshole who did this already had more publicity than he deserved.
