It might seem like an uphill battle. It might seem like we are getting nowhere. It might seem like we carry no weight. It might seem like our words fall on deaf ears. But we know something the powerless don’t. We know nothing is born without pain. We know this downward pressure is a sure sign something new and better will emerge, break through, burst out soon. We are so close. We just have to keep pushing a little longer. Just so it can gain momentum. Just so no one can hold it back. Trust the pain.
