“Defend the world in which we win as if it were your child.
It is your child.
Defend it as if it were your lover.
It is your lover.
…
When you inhale and when you exhale
breathe the possibility of another world
into the 37.2 trillion cells of your body
until it shines with hope.
Then imagine more.”
—V’ahavta by @auroralevinsmorales

“I am a border woman. I grew up between two cultures. It is an uncomfortable territory to live in, this place of contradictions. Living on borders and in margins, keeping intact one’s shifting and multiple identity and integrity, is like trying to swim in a new element. An ‘alien’ element. There is an exhilaration in being a participant in the further evolution of humankind, in being ‘worked on’” —Gloria Anzaldúa
