What does it mean to walk through invisible hate? Hate you know exists that does not show itself until it stings you?
Living with the anxiety & fear that hateful hearts and racism are invisibly hurting you everyday…
Knowing this hate can escalate in a flash is nauseating. Seeing it happening is nauseating.
I wish we didn't find solidarity in the hate we get.
Sometimes it's us, sometimes it's you. The trauma is different but it's hard not to feel the unease.
From a 70-year old Asian women fighting off an attacker, to 8 Asian Americans murdered in Atlanta. Many of the victims woman.
May they rest in peace & their families find strength.

Then we have to walk out the door to face the world.
I don't want to face my world alone, and I don't want you to feel we're not here with you either.
