I’ve seen so many “me too” posts, but they don’t surprise me. It breaks my heart, but I already knew. What I love, though, is I hear a gentle rising battle cry.
We post the words and then look around.
I am seen.
And I see you.
But we can’t let the wave of “me too” fall back to a whisper. Those who are able must stand up and be a voice for those who can’t yet say the words.
You say it’s another worthless bandwagon. I say anytime the conversation gets started, we need to jump in. Maybe one more person finds healing by seeing others share.
We need to fight. One candle might light a corner, but a million will light the darkness. Let no act of assault hide in the darkness.
Me too, I will stand by you. Me too, I will walk with you. Me too, I will go into the trenches. Me too, I am ready for battle.
What’s your next step?
