Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man.
in America, black people are being gunned down simply for being alive, gay people can’t get married/can’t get jobs, politicians say women are asking for rape, trans people are being murdered every day, Middle Easterns are suspected to be terrorists, white men are defended for shooting up schools, teenage boys are building bombs to murder family and schoolmates and yet people still have the audacity to say this is the land of the free
reading it all in one place amplifies the volume of work that needs to be done. anyone who is being complacent is doing a disservice to us all
to everyone saying “what has happened to our world”
when you feel it, say it. and if you say it, always mean it.
oh chicago, you are impossible to leave
