i know the world could be a better place if no one was disposable, but who am i to say that from my privileged ass sitting on a high horse?

i’m pretty sure i say that and in the back of my brain i believe some people are not as important or don’t need access to basic needs.

but it’s also important to hold an imperfect practice — justice and liberation aren’t about having all the answers or the best posture.

it’s not about me AND i am also allowed to speak up.

sound familiar?

sometimes i feel like i will only be writing from the same place forever.

no one should be disposable.
no one should be disposable.
no one should be disposable.

the world would be a better place if no one was disposable.
