Why the equal sign campaign means so much to so many.
We finally found it, people. A way to voice our bleeding hearts without being negative.
Proof that love can spread as quickly as fear and hate.
Visual evidence that us quiet folks who aren’t speaking up all the time, because we’re not angry all the time, are plentiful AND ORGANIZED.
A way to say, “I believe in this.” Without speaking ugly of those who don’t.
A proactive, not reactive, approach.
A hidden community of like minded strangers. (I logged onto Songza today and nearly passed out with joy when I saw all the other avatars like mine. All strangers but with a clear common interest in humanity and happiness and love!)
A big neon sign to so many young men and women who thought they were wrong, or hated, or alone that they are not. Not by a long shot.
This is bigger than the Supreme Court making the right decision based on the constitution. It’s about all of us saying, “we don’t have to wait for that.”
Angie, being Angie. A perfectly imperfect woman, daughter, friend, mother, and wife. I’m a lover and a fighter. I’m up, and I’m down. I succeed. I fuck up. (I cuss). I hope people see things here and in my writing they only think to themselves and are inspired to be unashamed of who they are.
Let’s live life… out loud.
