Keep your head high

It’s easy to feel helpless.
Like you can’t change the world around you.
Like there is an unstoppable evil taking over the world, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
I feel like that, and I’m sure you do too.
But you have to remember: you are not alone.
You are not the only one who wants to see the best in other people.
You are not the only one who cries over news of children being torn apart from their parents at the border.
You are not the only one who thinks students should not need bulletproof backpacks.
You are not the only one who thinks women deserve equal pay.
You are not the only one who cares that the glaciers are melting.
You are not the only one.
It may not seem like it, but you are not alone.
We’re here; we’re marching; we’re writing; we’re organizing; we’re voting; we are making change. And you are too. Keep your head high.
