I had hoped to get Readings for the Resistance, February 2017 (Part 2) up last week, but job transitioning took precedence. (On that note, today is officially my first day as Chief Financial Officer at Aviva Family and Childen’s Services.) The delay just gave me more time to collect links!

It’s That Guy. The Resistible One.
How’d We Get Here? And What Do We Do Now?
When The Political Gets Personal
If You Think The Resistance is About Politics—You’re Not Listening | john pavlovitz It’s not that it’s not about politics, but it’s about so much more:
“The greatest tragedy right now is that you believe that we are the enemy or that we believe that you are the enemy.
We don’t believe that you are; nor is faith, family, security, safety, or whatever you treasure because chances are we probably treasure it too. That’s how Humanity works.
Hatred is the enemy, bigotry is the enemy, injustice is the enemy, isolation is the enemy, inequality is the enemy.
It is against these things that we resist, in whatever form they take and from wherever they originate and whatever religious or political affiliation conceives them.”
“Barack Obama, our great hope, our American dream… was not normal.
This guy? P45? Is totally normal.
And he will never NOT be normal if you don’t own him as a product of who we have chosen to be as a people for two hundred years.”
