What Age Comes Enlightenment?

*Squeezes bridge of nose between thumb and forefinger*
*Shakes head almost imperceptibly*
*Drops hand and raised head, nostrils flared and eyes bright with determination*
*Takes a deep breath*

I DO NOT CARE IF A MAN FINALLY REALIZES HOW HIS ACTIONS AND WORDS ARE HARMFUL TO ALL WOMEN, ALL BECAUSE HE WATCHED HIS DAUGHTER DEAL WITH DAILY SEXUAL HARASSMENT

I DO NOT CARE THAT IT TAKES A MIDDLE AGED WHITE WOMAN FINALLY ADMIT TO THE RAMPANT RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY, ONLY AFTER SEEING IT WITH HER OWN EYES

I DO NOT CARE THAT A PARENT ONLY RECOGNIZES ALL LGBTQ HAVE MOST OF SOCIETY TO FEAR BY JUST BEING THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEIR SON, WHO HAS BEEN BULLIED MOST OF HIS SCHOOL LIFE, FINALLY ADMITTED HE WAS GAY

I DO NOT CARE HOW A PERSON IS FINALLY ABLE TO SEE HOW OUR SOCIETY FAILS ITS MOST VULNERABLE.  I DO NOT CARE IF THEY MUST EXPERIENCE IT THEMSELVES IN ORDER TO BELIEVE US.

I WILL NOT SILENCE SOMEONE’S VOICE, WHO’S RISES WITH MY OWN ALL BECAUSE I DON’T HAPPEN TO LIKE THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE ME BEFORE

STOP SILENCING OUR ALLIES BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T REACH ENLIGHTENMENT THE WAY YOU THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE
