Next year…

Next year I resolve to be fearless.

I resolve to resist.

I had no idea my country was so ugly. I resolve to make it less ugly.

I resolve to set boundaries I will not cross.

I resolve to not let others cross them either.

I resolve to listen more to the oppressed.

I resolve to step aside and let them speak.

I resolve that I will not let my feelings trump the lives of others.

I resolve that those around me will know I stand for the under-privileged.

2016 was a year of defeat.

2017 will be the year we strike back.

Hard. Swift. Unrelenting.

I don’t ever want to see another 2016 as long as I live.
