Let’s face it: 2017 was a shitty year. We spent every second of it fighting and I think I’m not the only one who is fucking exhausted on this December 31st.
But 2017, for all its shittiness also shone a light in places that needed light for years. It started to dismantle structures that were in place for decades. It – no, WE took down more than one toxic man in the process.
I have no illusions that 2018 will be any better. We’re not done yet. We’ll keep fighting because it’s our only option. We’ll keep taking down anyone who is toxic and we’ll keep standing up for everyone marginalized.
Just like this year, we’ll be so tired that we’ll want to quit. Just like this year, we won’t. Because many snowflakes make an avalanche and climate change is real. Because facts are different from opinions and there’s a difference between science and faith. Because we’re real and we’re here and we’re not going to go back in our closet.
