Concerning violence

People do not violently resist because they enjoy violence or are inherently criminal – they do so because they hold life sacred. It is then those who condemn this form of resistance that hold life in contempt.

Why I’m here

I’ve attempted to make sense of it above, but I could have also told a story about my mom, or my eighth grade English teacher or Leland Stanford himself. Organizing the past brings clarity to the joys and fears of our former selves and reminds us how we got here in the first place. With so much to do in the future it can feel tiresome to look back, but it’s never insignificant. There are infinite roads behind us.
