🎃👻🎃Happy Halloween 🎃 👻 🎃
Adam and I join in the worldwide mourning of 11 innocent lives lost in Pittsburgh this weekend.
We join in the forceful, worldwide, ongoing condemnation of White Nationalism, Anti-Semitism, and all forms of hate.
We reject communities that are formed around the hatred, marginalization, and oppression of any group or religion under the flimsy cover of "free speech".
We are full of sorrow, and we remain unbowed.
Our hearts are broken, and we do not despair.
We are full of love in the face of hate, as has been asked of us, always.
We close our eyes and remember that the message of every great martyr and spiritual teacher has reflected the same truth: the path is clear, long, difficult, and worth it.
We open our eyes and see that path which is made of, and has always led to, love.
The glory of the soul is our true inheritance.
We take the next step together.
Silence is not an option when the stakes are this high, and while the release that comes with posting righteous anger and outrage feels potent, I worry it is proving ineffective at actually reaching those who need to hear the message most. This leaves me no option but to let my anger take a back seat and offer this moment to love.
To my trans brothers and sisters: you have given us so much light to guide on the path of love- thank you, from the bottom of my heart. To all the trans children out there: I love you. You matter so much. I can’t wait until you grow up and teach us what comes next.
Yes, I speak love here, but make no mistake: all the love and light in the world is nothing without action and justice, and so I will also get out and #VOTE for the rights of Trans Americans, and I will #VOTE against anyone threatening to dim the brightness of our shared future.
To anyone rolling your eyes at this issue, or who thinks this doesn’t affect them: wise up, friend. We’re all in this together and the lives of our fellow Americans are under attack from the very top. I know this issue may feel challenging to some of you, but your feelings are not more important than another human’s intrinsic right to freedom and existence.
