You don’t know me. I’m 77 years old and I already do almost all those things you listed, but I somehow had this odd idea that if I wore the safety pin, it might someday indicate to someone that might feel in danger or feel unsafe, that i was someone they could sit by, stand next to or whatever and I was a safe person!! So don’t assume you know my motives. I still work with the homeless, I DO speak up when I see someone doing something that is doing something that is bigoted, racist etc. as I have done all my life. SO, get a life and quit judging everyone unless you know their motives.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
