2016 was an intense year for me, for the United States of America, and for the entire world. We are living in different times right now, things are changing all around us, and we must all remember not to let unjust and exploitative actions, policies, or behaviors become normalized in our country and in the world. We must not allow our fellow peoples to fall into harms way while we sit back and enjoy the privileges we experience as a nation, as different groups and cultures, and as individuals.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from the Birmingham Jail
