I wanted to have a fun image, but right now doesn’t feel like the time for that. And honestly, my Twitter feed isn’t filled with funny jokes or memes. It’s people trying to change the world, risking their lives to do so. 2020 sucks for a lot of reasons, but the folks fighting right now are heroes and I hope they don’t have to keep fighting for decades more.
