I am afraid and upset, horrified and frustrated. I have done, and continue to do, myriad things locally and nationally, to try and stem the tide. I cannot do it alone, and I do not hold out hope that enough of us will emerge on the right side of basic human decency before this entire country is engulfed in total annihilation. I often think about leaving … and I can. I have no strong ties here. I don’t do anything here I can’t do from another, more stable country.

And so, I ask now, because I often wonder and wrestle with this: is it *morally* wrong for me to emigrate?
