NO / YES

Something should be written here that retains some resonance for the reader. Something to make them feel better before going on with their day. Maybe something scintillating that will lead to a ruminating pause or two as the day evolves. Something they might repeat to another person, who in turn would repeate it to someone else who would also repeat it and in turn form a chain that would wend its way across the world and sit nicely with most who heard it, and cause others to reflect deeply on its evocation.

NO TO HATE
NO TO INEQUITY
NO TO WAR
NO TO RACISM
NO TO PATRIARCHY
NO TO HEGEMONY
NO TO FASCISTS
NO TO OLIGARCHY

YES TO YOU
YES TO UNDERSTANDING
YES TO AN OPEN HEART & OPEN MIND
YES TO PEACE
