On Donald Trump: Take Sides

I’m tired of seeing posts from people who say they are not taking sides in this presidential debacle that elected Donald Trump. You know what?

TAKE A SIDE! If not for this, then what? Find your voice, take a stand, be subject to nasty hurtful commentary, lose friends, but know when you lay down at night that you can sleep with a clear conscience because you stood up, you said something, you did something, you marched, you donated to organizations working to fight this kind of racism, sexism, misogyny, discrimination. You listened with an open heart and an even more open mind to the horrors experienced by those who are doing nothing more than being black, Muslim, homosexual, female, Hispanic, transgender…in other words, doing nothing more than being themselves. You bore witness to the suffering and did not turn away, you walked with those in pain, you held them up when they couldn't stand up for themselves. 

DAMN RIGHT YOU NEED TO TAKE A SIDE! Because we need to stand together against tyranny. Because if you don’t, who will be there to take yours?
