A thought for the day- Beauty anywhere is beauty everywhere

Happy sunny day!

To Christians, today is such a significant day. I hope that you’re beautifully fulfilled by it.

To friends who don’t celebrate Easter, it’s such a sunny and wonderful day outside, I really hope you get to soak it in and enjoy it.

A few weeks ago I was at the Women in the World conference, and it was amazing. I cried, laughed, cheered and was inspired.

One woman who runs a foundation for Dalit women in India mentioned that the world is so small, ‘injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.’

She is absolutely right.

We cannot claim that things are so far away anymore. We can’t just change the channel away from the sad infomercial, or scroll past the news on Facebook. Our world is too small and technology brings us all too close for that.

We must react.

And knowing many of you- I know that you do, and so I offer this.

If it is true that injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere, which I accept to be so, then the statement ‘justice anywhere is justice everywhere’ must also be true.

So when we work to make the world better in our town, our communities, or around the world, we are contributing to making the entire world a better place.

Kindness anywhere is kindness everywhere.

Love anywhere is love everywhere.

Hope anywhere is hope everywhere.

No matter what you believe or don’t believe, I know that this is a thought and these are statements that we can all get behind.

Have a wonderful day,
Kristen

Dear Mister - Capitol Hill!

I decided to take my protest to the Capitol today. It was fun despite the cold and the rain. :)

This video deserves its own thread because it’s that important.

If you are not driving or operating heavy machinery, you need to look at this NOW. Like, right now.

This is why media representation matters. This is why all the POCs in just about every story being evil, dead, stupid, or non-existent is harmful.

Watch this right fucking now.

ETA: I hope people of color are not the only ones liking and reblogging this.

well worth the ten minutes. watch it. warning : depressing

Still.

I need to start taking advantage of the fact that I LIVE IN A BEACH TOWN! Why do I need to travel to other beaches to appreciate my own? I’m nuts for the water. :)
