It has truly been a tumultuous week. But in all our anger and despair, we must find love. Now more than ever, is the time to be strong and to fight.

I thought I was going to be doing a much different post. I thought I was going to be bubbly with joy and go on and on about how proud I was and how the white in this shoot against the backdrop of the U.S Capitol represents one of the biggest triumphs in the suffragist and women’s rights movement. But I’m not.

And I’ve taken a couple days to think about it, and though I am far from being ok, I am more determined than I have ever been to be a person who sparks change. A person that is kind, and loving, and open. A person who speaks up when something is wrong, and a person who accepts other people. I now have a stronger will and a longer endurance. We now all must. In the words of Hillary Clinton, “it is always worth it to fight for what is right.”
