1. “We love because it is the only true adventure.” Nikki Giovanni. And I love that.
2. Parkland. One year later. And a mass shooting nearly every single day in America. That still amounts to only 2% of all gun related deaths a year - 456 out of 39,000. The most gun related deaths being suicide - 23,000, then homicide (check out @vox for more stats). 39,000 deaths. THIS is a national emergency. A wall is not.
3. Currently, when you google Serena Williams (I do this often - she is the greatest of all time for a million billion reasons) the first thing that pops up is an article about her husband. Funny, because I didn’t ask about him. Happy Valentine’s Day patriarchy. Ugh.
