2017 only seems like the worst year ever in human history because we’ve forgotten how awful 2016 was. The passage of time hasn’t gone well for a while for millions of human beings. But we will make 2018 a renewal of our commitment to human solidarity with all those struggling against war, occupation, genocide, inequality. In that regard, social media has made our mission possible in a way it wasn’t just a decade ago. We’ve made social media our meeting grounds where we can get to know, respect, collaborate, & even love one another. Which is why governments are monitoring & censoring us. They can’t let that happen & we can’t let them take it away from us. This is a year for taking on that censorship stuff head-on.
Thank you to all my FB friends for teaching, inspiring, making me laugh. We can change the world to make it worthy of our children & overcome the inequalities that make life a hell for so many if we stand together. Happy new year.
