I feel the need to talk to you all, and I’m struggling with words-but things still need said.
So I’m going just make this post about what really matters-love and acceptance. I won’t-and can’t-give into hate, especially with what happened yesterday/this morning.
You are valid. You are loved. You are valued. You have worth. You have meaning. You are needed. You have purpose. You are important.
Here are links to some of the blogs I’ve written that are necessary right now, I feel, and the more important ones have ** beside them.
Please know that this day is but one of many. And although what you are feeling is valid, our battle is only just beginning. I will be out there, fighting for rights-yours and mine. And as long as we all know that oppression isn’t something we have to just accept, we will never be defeated.
All I ask is that we do not give into fear and hatred. That is the currency of the people who were elected-not us.
Together, we are stronger. Together, we will live.
The sun will rise again.
