I wrote this a couple of years ago and painted it on my wall. I want to just whisper it into the world tonight. Because I can’t magically fix the problems. Because I don’t have the standing or the resources to right the wrongs of today or any day. Because all I have in this moment are these words.
In this moment lies every moment
The strength of our victory
The vulnerability of our failure
The beauty of our unity
The brilliance of our difference
The comfort of our suffering
The joy of our bliss
The singular chance of us lies complete
In this moment
Wherever we are, whoever we are, whatever we are, we have this moment, packed as it is with all our failings and victories, however great or slight. We have this moment to begin the change. We have every moment to continue the change. We can change ourselves. We can teach our children, our friends, our loved ones, our enemies, our allies. We can learn from them, too. Together, we are the ultimate catalysts, and human is our race.
