An Open Letter to Progressives

Dear Fellow Progressives,

In reference to Progressive criticism of the latest Supreme Court pick, I thought I'd say a few words.

Until we heal the wounds within ourselves, we will never be able to health the wounds of this world.

Until we stop being reactive, rather than proactive, our agenda will not be advanced.

Until we cease being as unflinchingly unforgiving of ourselves as we are towards our opposition, we will not see substantial growth.

Until we can own our limitations, we will never have peace of mind.

Until we stand united, acknowledging the ways we are similar and not different, no protest, boycott, or movement will hold.

Until we sustain health individually, collective purpose will never be a reality.
