Balance of Power.
Somewhere with a hope that the impoverishment, injustices and imbalance that we are seeing impact so many lives right now at home and abroad, creates a serious and continued shift in civility, compassion for humanity and basic decency. To be less ambiguous, we shouldn’t have to watch a video of a man viciously knock a woman unconscious and dispassionately drag and kick her, to know that this type of depraved behavior is happening and being ignored with the same amount of flagrance in homes and cars and elevators and villages all over the world every day.
@Instagram has been promoting the #CommunityFirst hashtag and notion in recent months, giving back to the community that has made it such a powerful tool for creative expression and global interconnectivity. I am of the hope that this Community First notion is one that encourages us beyond that, to look at the challenges, ills, needy, abused, underrepresented in our communities and begin and/or continue to make forceful and immediate change where we can, and where we think we can’t. Just because it happens behind closed doors does not mean it is not happening. | Photo: August 14 | Disgust: Right Now
