Resist!

Back in January I went to the women's march but never ended up sharing my pictures. Now that we are faced with the possibility of the replacement of obamacare with a healthcare plan that favors the advantaged and essentially ignores the disadvantaged, it is a good time to be reminded why we all came together in January. Right now we are living in a time where our leadership is essentially telling us that some human lives are more valuable than others, that some people don't matter. This is not okay. Keep reminding yourself that.
















With all that is going on, it is so easy to get discouraged. I feel discouraged often. But we have to remember that even small acts of resistance are important. And in this environment and this culture, acts of kindness toward all humans is essentially an act of resistance. So even if you feel like you can't go out and change the world and fix this mess we are in, you can help by caring...by caring about each other and by treating other's with respect, dignity and kindness.

I really like your commentary at the end. As Obama was leaving his presidency he said in reference to people who were troubled and worried about Trump's upcoming presidency, "The only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world."
