Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found.
I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay... Small acts of kindness and love.

Note to self:
None of us are getting out alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought.
Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you're carrying in your heart like a hidden treasure.
Be silly. Be weird. Be kind. There's no time for anything else.
-Nanea Hoffman

38 y/o, happily married, with 3 daughters. A pastor's kid who left the faith and did the whole sex, drugs, & rock 'n' roll thing in high school. Came back to faith in a major way as a young adult in a charismatic church. Over time, became disillusioned and started questioning why the church didn't seem to really follow scripture. Then, Trump became the GOP nominee and I saw so many I respected in the church vote for him and support him, which pushed deconstruction into overdrive.

I've been hesitating to put up "solutions" reaources because they invite so much mansplaining & abuse, & because it's a complicated discussion informed by privilege in all kinds of ways. But we can get into all that another day. For now, some things YOU can do. I'll link to another one below. (1/2)
