Oh, you guys, what a week. I've been feeling so down the last couple of days, as the tensions in the country are still so high after what feels like just about 10 years of this campaign. It feels like it might never end, that we might never all get on the same page, and I've been thinking about what I could do.
I can promise to call out and stop discrimination where I see it. I can be kind to everyone - including those who voted for Trump, and especially those who are afraid. I can do what I always do, which is let my art give me some moments of peace, and that's what I'd like to share with you today.
There is uncertainty in the air for many groups of people, and they all need our support!, but living in an urban area like Minneapolis, I've been specifically thinking of our Black and Muslim neighbors this week. If you are thinking of them too and are at a loss for what to do, I think a simple sign in your home/apartment/rear window of your car might help at least let them know that we are here. Feel free to download, share, and print this free 8.5x11 sign as many times as you want!
