Are you okay? I'm okay. I find myself asking and answering that question a lot.
With so much sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, bigotry, et al, a lot of people feel scared for themselves and for their loved ones. We check in on them, they check in on us.
This phrase started coming into my head. "We okay? We okay." It started to be a mantra I said to myself as a way of reaffirming that while there may be things that suck, we will stand together and get through it.
So, we okay?
