To everyone who is tired, I'm right here with you.
To everyone who is angry, I'm right here with you.
To everyone who is scared, anxious, disappointed, heartbroken, I am right here with you.
I'm not going to pretend like I know how you feel.
I'm not going to deny or try and pacify how you feel.
All I ask is that while you're working through all of it,
or when you have worked through all of it,
to remember that I.am.here.right.here.with.you.
I always have been and I always will be.
We stand together.
We hold our heads up high,
keep our sleeves rolled up and our hands in the muck.
It is people like us who saw an end to sanctioned slavery.
It is people like us who took the first steps towards civil liberty.
It is people like us who secured the right for women to vote.
It is people like us who saw the first black president win office twice in a row.
And it is people like us who will see this country through the upcoming, dark tunnel.
Peace, love and everything good
