Don't Agonize. Organize.

Well friends.  It's time to Make America Great Again.  It remains to be seen how that will unfold and what is to come.  I can say with much confidence though, that if America is to be improved or even maintained WE have to join together in unity and respect and in love to stand up for things that matter to us.  Time to stand up for people who are scared, marginalized and threatened.  Time to stand up for the planet we love.  It is easy to feel fear and despair, but I vote we choose action.  Action over agony. 

We are all people, with so much more in common than in difference.  The divisive forces of hate and fear have mobilized.  They have always been there but they've been given a powerful and forceful outlet.  It's not enough to be a good person anymore; the uniting forces of love and positivity have to mobilize as well.

It's time for aggressive positivity.

It's time to act in the interests of the world we want to see and protect.  Below are some organizations to become involved with.  Take action or donate:

The truth is most of our life unfolds in small ways, with little events, reactions, words, choices.  We have to make a difference in even the smallest of ways.  Apathy is allowance.  Indifference is supporting.  Take a stand for kindness every day, in every way you can.  Don't allow hate to pass before you unchecked.  #LoveRevolution #AggressivePositivity
