Seriously. Individual self-esteem is the foundation of all power.
The individual, in service to another, for the benefit of the collective -- this is how you, me, and we create the world we all want to live in.
Abuse is intolerable. Discrimination in all forms is unacceptable. Hate in any guise, under any banner, claiming any motivation, is evil.
Silence can be one of our greatest failures.
The urge to defend yourself and others is inevitable when you operate from a place of self-love.
Passivity is not the only holy choice.
