How are you feeling? Have you taken a deep breath? Have you gone outside to feel the sun on your face?
We know This Time is difficult and scary. Many of us have been uprooted from our schools, our routines, our jobs, and for some of us, the places where we finally felt safe. The future is uncertain, but what has come into clear focus is that we need each other now more than ever. Individualism is a lie y’all. We belong to each other.
Our strength is in our relationships and our kin networks that transcend state & county lines. Even when we are practicing physical distancing, we know how to show up for each other in social solidarity. We will provide strength and refuge in each other–– our resources are our relationships. We know how to invest in those relationships and build each other up as leaders.
Wash your hands, check on your friends and neighbors– we ain’t gonna let this isolate us.
