The Manner of Our Standing

One of the best gifts I ever received as a young teen was a punching bag. I’m convinced it saved me from other outlets I could’ve explored when things weren’t going my way.

Friends, the anger of many is real—fresh, and painful—after this presidential election. Grieving is, and should be, part of the process when a dream hasn’t come true, or maybe has just been delayed.

My social media prediction was proved right, unfortunately. (You can read it here.) People who were on speaking terms two days ago are throwing virtual uppercuts at each other today—the Internet, splayed open with the stench of hate. And sadly, those who are claiming to be all about love are showing quite the opposite.

But we’re human. I get it.

Emotions run deep, yes?

Do stand for what you believe. That’s your right. It’s your freedom in this land we share together. But it’s the manner of our standing that will bring about change. Lasting change.
