A Prayer for Those Who Aren't Talking to Some Someones They Love Right Now and Feel Awful About It


Beautiful agitated agitators:

Sometimes activism isn't just on the streets or on a petition or on a Live Feed or even on the rest of the world's radar at all.

Sometimes it's just a firm "No" offered to someone to whom you've always said "Yes."

Sometimes it's a very private protest, one that no one else might immediately understand, because no one else has an inkling of just how much history you are working against, just how many years of affection you are putting into question, just how awkward the pauses and how painful the silences and how irrevocable the severings feel. 

This is activism.
And your "No" is the most loving "Yes" these people can hear right now.

Amen
