Posted by UNITY 2022 on August 7, 2022
Hello Young Me,
I’m writing this letter to you because there will be times throughout your life when you question the inevitability of good to triumph over evil. There will be times when you have doubts that the various movements are effectively organized to challenge the formidable enemies of the entire planet. Over the years, you will confront the adaptive elements of capitalism and tackle both the overt and covert manifestations of racism, patriarchy, and homophobia.
The life you choose will not be easy. I regret to tell you that the struggle will get more difficult.
