If you don’t choose

If you don’t choose, someone else will. And we need wise and loving folks to choose. ⁣

Here’s the thing: The current administration blatantly makes stuff up and foments hate, and those behaviors are hurting real human beings. You don’t have to think the alternative is perfect to agree that it creates an environment more open to the democratic process of civil discourse and political action which can enable the improvements you really want to see. You don’t have to think the alternative is perfect to agree that it feels and is safer for lots of folks in your community when the far right isn’t in power. If you have the right to vote in the United States, and a kind and thoughtful heart, I hope you use them this week to nudge our world in a more progressive direction. 🇺🇸🗳⁣
