Wandering through Twitter it’s sometimes easy to lose hope. You see the effects of the lies and brinkmanship of elected officials overreach, of violence and hatred of peaceful protests being forcefully destroyed, of sexism, racism, ageism, anti-Semitism, nationalism and a 1001
ways to hate another living breathing human. It’s easy to give up and drown in the violence and hatred of these days. But we can’t. Not even for an instance. We have to fight and make that dream of a peaceful and co-operative world true, one interaction at a time.
Some days you have the energy to take on the world and you can protest, write to your elected representative, vote, volunteer and do physical acts to make life better for everyone. Other days it’s all you can do to get out of bed and feed yourself.
