  • I know people who say they aren't political
    won't talk politics
    ignore it all
    proclaim is will get in the way of their spirituality
    their vision
    their relationships
    their friendships.....
    but being polite won't save us
    in this day
    in this age
    at this time in history
    even with discomfort
    it may feel uncomfortable
    to stand against our government
    to speak out
    freedom of speech while we still have it
    when we see hear
    we see it and we know it
    we know what is being taken
    what is at risk
    already gone
    freedom of the press
    women’s reproductive rights
    affordable healthcare
    security for immigrants and Muslims and LGBTQ
    civil rights
    environmental protection
    safe food
    global cooperation on limiting climate change
    restraints on who may possess firearms
    freedom from corporate influence over our laws
    endless wars
    our elections
    our lives

    pursuit of happiness
    life matters...
    so does the next Supreme Court Justice...
    what we do matters
    this is not the time to go quietly along
    what we do or don't do is political
    doing nothing is a political statement
    silence speaks volumes
