Joanne pre-NYMHM: 9 Nov 2016

If you feel like you need to do something, give money and/or time to Standing Rock or Black Lives Matter or the Innocence Project or the Government Accountability Project or Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch or your local library or your local soup kitchen.

The world hasn’t ended. This is an armistice, not a defeat.

If you feel like all you can do today is build a blanket fort and watch Jane Austen movies, do that. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to your neighbours. Let’s be gentle with each other. Let’s be there for each other. Every small kindness matters. I’m so glad you are all here with me and I’m sending you all love and resilience.
