Hear me out.
It is more than a protest. A meme. A social media post. It is about stepping UP and OUT with your voice. Personally? I cannot handle one more negative or violent bit of content in my news-feed.
I left Facebook for a better life. Momentarily. Sometimes your content is too much for other people and honestly? It isn't changing the world. Sorry.
Social activism is just that. It is being SOCIAL. Not using social media to protest injustice from the comforts of your home. It is calling out those closest to you without pointing a finger. It is empathy. It is maturity. It is recognizing differences and why people act the way they do. Yah, the world is a crazy place and sometimes I want to tell people to f* off. But that is not an act of love.
Where do you stand?
Sh*t is crazy right now. We all know that. However, it is an opportunity to really do things differently. To connect and talk. Not point fingers. The days of gathering in protest are over and times have to evolve. Digitally. More to come on this topic soon.
