Learning to stand up against hatred is part of being a good human, an integral part of being led by love, justice, and honesty. It’s easy to tell people what they must do in theory — to stand against what is wrong, and stand for what is right — but to put it into practice is a little bit harder, for standing for something oftentimes means that you’re standing against something.

And standing against something can be quite terrifying if you’re met with something like a Nazi.

I write essays and poetry about life lessons, love, relationships, and self-awareness. More info: meganminutillo.com + @meganminutillo.
