yes, it is right to be sad about terrible things
and express it.
nothing more truly empowering,
setting us in motion,
encouraging us to stand up,
to hope against all hope.
it makes us strong, not hard.
it makes us melt and does’n break us.
it embraces our dreams, while not overlooking our despair.
so let's be radically sad,
appalled by the state our world is in,
appalled even more by the arrogant composure of the destroyers of our world.
for our grief is our strength,
and whoever cannot grieve is dead.
