Someone I look up to shared this Audre Lorde quote this week & it was exactly what I needed. It's overwhelming to see the scope of how deep systemic oppression runs in this country. It's tempting to quit trying, quit knowing just how terrible things are. It doesn't work though - it's much better to 'write fire until it's every breath you breathe' to know you've tried the best you can. Here's to all you meteors, trying & fighting.
