My heart is broken for the state of our nation and the state of humanity. What is going on?! Scary and devastating. I'm tired of the hate and the ignorance. I'm tired of the segregation and the exclusion. WAKE UP PEOPLE! We are all humans. Black, White, Purple, Gay, Straight, Trans - HUMAN! That is it. End of equation. You may not like a certain lifestyle for yourself, but you do not have the right to tell others how to live. It seems so simple, yet we are continually facing more and more destruction at our own hands. Have we learned nothing from the Holocaust? Or the genocide in Africa? Or slavery? It really blows my mind.
I don't want this to become political or to fuel any fury. I just want to express how heartsick I am and how, as a writer, it is unfathomable that life is truly becoming stranger than fiction. I spend my days devising plots full of conflict and drama and I could never dream up the savagery that I have witnessed in recent history. And all I can do is ask WHY??
We need more love. That's it. We need to combat the hate with love. Fight the evil with good. And show the bad guys that they can't bring us down. That we are stronger than their hate. Our love and our acceptance and our unity will inevitably be the thing that triumphs. But we can't lose hope and we need to do it together. We are all we have.
