The thing I like about anger is that it’s quite motivating.
Listen. Read. Research.
Think about how people are being treated. Valued.
Allowed to truly enjoy their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness—or not.
And why that is.
Let the understanding that floods you feed an anger that is productive. One that helps you speak up at home, around town, in your kids’ schools, at the voting booths, with your mouth and your hands and your votes and your feet and your purchasing dollars.
Your actions will say a lot to your kids. So will your inaction. They’re watching, and they can tell right from wrong. They are born believing we’re all the same. Show them you believe we all should be treated that way.
If the people in power want to keep another group (or more) from achieving equal power (or equality, period), ask yourself why that is.
What are they afraid of?
Scared people do dangerous things. Let’s use our anger to activate against them and fix all the things that are very, very wrong right now.
One day at a time.
One voice at a time.
Trust me: they will add up.
