Three things.

Love. Love the people around you. Show them warmth and care and strength and vulnerability today. Show them you are with them. Show them you need them. Show them you will stand up for them and stand beside them.

Resist. Resist the urge of feeling crushed or panicked. Resist the temptation to despair. Resist the sense of powerlessness. Resist what threatens love. Resist what threatens nature. Resist what threatens humanity, human decency, human dignity, and human rights.

Connect. Connect to groups that share your fears and won’t stop fighting. Connect to your feelings. Connect to your future. Connect to your breath. Connect to music. Connect to your neighbors. Connect to anyone who needs to be affirmed and reassured today. Connect to your creativity, drive, and influence. Connect to your privilege and use the fuck out of it.

Love. Resist. Connect.
