I was on my Substack today and someone reached out to me about my last post on ONE ANGRY BLACK CHICK with so much love and support I cried. It was then that I recognized that I hadn’t had one panic attack since I began writing here and elsewhere and to date. I also have 60 subs in less than a month on Substack and growing.
John Lennon, Gandhi, MLK, and all the others, flawed men but men of conscience—they got it.
Love is indeed the answer.
To fucking everything.
Real love too, not that narcissistic shit that some folks preach. It isn’t clingy, possessive, controlling, manipulative or cruel. If you find yourselves in the crosshairs of that mess—get out—FAST!
Real love—humanitarian love. It just is and it heals.
And yeah, I can get a bit salty at times, and yeah, I suffer fools lightly—but I am driven by that principle. Never has the strength of love been more apparent than in the dark times we now live in.
I soon realized that despite my despair, we will win. Not sure if I will see the fruits of peace bloom in my lifetime, but we will. The human will is strong and it is fortified by love, compassion, and hope.
I created the above video with a list of Liberal/Progressive pundits in the description. It is not comprehensive, so if you guys know of anyone I can add, please let me know.
I love ya’ll so much! Keep resisting, keep growing, keep loving—blessed be! Alicia
