this is our world.
this is our family.
this is our home.
this is our life.
Arkansas denying healthcare and insurance to trans youth.
Georgia, Texas and so many other states with Republican Legislatures enacting racist modern day Jim Crow voter suppression laws.
a rise in aggression and violence toward the AAPI community.
growing income equality and a widening gap between obscene wealth and desperate poverty.
family, friends, neighbors refusing to wear a piece of cloth in order to help save lives.
an unbridled, unrestricted love affair with weapons of death and turning a cold cheek to mass shootings.
a planet sick and suffering from over accumulation and over consumption, wreaking havoc on ecosystems.
this is us.
this is on us.
and it is up to us to engage this world, to use our lives – our words, our actions, our art, our love – to heal the harm and wounds, to rebuild that which has been destroyed, to reduce suffering where we can, and create the reality we want to live in.
we have the hearts, the intelligence, and the raw bravery to do it, if that is what we want.
