Day of #RevolutionaryLove, Day of Rising.
We reclaim Valentine's Day as a Day of Revolutionary Love, Day of Rising. We resist all executive orders and policies that put people in harm’s way. We commit to fight for social justice through the ethic of love -- love for others, our opponents, and ourselves.

The #RevolutionaryLove of a #LoveArmy is... Uncomfortable.

That we are nothing with all those, near and far, who impact our lives. Lives in the past, present, and future all play a role in the people we transform ourselves into. To my friend who makes me their enemy... I am sorry you feel that way. I am sorry for your pain and suffering thay leads you to see me this way. I am sorry my existence, my identities, and my communities were not sufficient to make you realize that I am human enough to eternally be your equal on this planet. I am sorry that I could do enough to make you realize we need each other. All those that you have made your adversaries are already your partners, your benefactors, and the very reasons why you live the life you live. They stack your shelves with food, the sew the thread of your clothing, they build your houses and maintain them. They educate your children, are your colleagues at work, and could some day be your life partner. The enemy you are creating for yourself has been the very foundation of your life... And you have not realozed that yet. We are siblings in destiny. If we can only want the best for ourselves, it is all rooted in wanting the best for others. The Muslim, the homosexual person, the refugee, the immigrant could be a playing a more essential more in your life than your own family. And that might just be an uncomfortable feeling. But so not despair... The truth is bitter and uncomfortable sometimes. And I know you will grow out of this hate and ignorance to realize that we can either let history repeat itself... Or write a new chapter in history that remarks the inclusion and pluralism we sorely deserve as the United States of America, an experiment of over 240 years that calls us to find the entire world from sea to shining sea. #WeAreBetterTogether #WeAreStrongerTogether #WeAreOne -TS
