Make this as difficult as possible

We are going to lose so much. The deck is stacked against us and we cannot win everything, or even most things. We are going to lose things we didn’t even realize were things.


188 million adults in this country didn’t vote for Trump and Trumpism. And we can make it as difficult as possible–at every step–for them to steal from us.

With each other, especially with the most vulnerable, sow peace. Be kinder. Be sweeter. Scaffold each other.

But with Trumpists and those who are trying to destroy us, resist at every step. Punch with closed fist. Laugh while you draw blood. Make it as long and drawn-out and expensive as possible for them to steal from you.

If you’re Gen X, be a cockroach. If you’re Millennial, be a unicorn. We’ll go high and low at the same time to make them fight a two-front war, while you Boomers be show ponies and kick them in the kidneys.

There are jobs for everyone. You don’t have to do all of them. Harass your politicians. Raise disobedient children. Be queer as fuck. Make a lot of money. Go bald with confidence. Be kind to your employees. Run for office. Organize people. Be loyal to youself. Don’t give evil a pass.

Be difficult.

Be incredibly, stubbornly, exquisitely difficult.

All my love,
