Small steps for change

The levee of my heart breaks.

There’s so much despair yet I struggle where to focus, where to begin.

Choose a topic, it’s fucked: mental illness, sex trafficking, LGBTQ+ studies, racial injustices…

There is so much pain! It overwhelms my system.

What can I do? How can I help?

Each one is a tear and they collectively flow as a river down my face into my heart.
