Be a Lighthouse: How I Protest Every Day

Since my rant last week, I’ve been thinking… I was at my wits end, throwing my hands up in the air and waving them like…well…like I care.  I have a ton of care in my heart, as I think many of us do.  We are not ok with watching our country’s shit show from the side lines but maybe we’re not quite sure what we can do, what difference we can actually make, and exactly how to go about making it.

2019: The Year of Being Face-to-Face.

What feeds my soul is to participate in my actual life rather than in a virtual world where only people’s “good sides” are shown (both physically and emotionally).  I don’t want to see only a person’s best of reel.  I want to see the pain and struggle that leads to beautiful growth and fragility.
