To a More Perfect Union

#ToAMorePerfectUnion | Freckled Italian

I had planned an essay post today but was hit with some pretty heavy writers block. One of my goals for 2017 is to not push things that aren't ready--to do better in all the areas of my life, but especially the creative ones. Sometimes that means just being patient.

Then I came across this lovely poster made by two super talented people whose paths I've crossed in Charlotte, and I felt called to share it with you today, on the inauguration of the next President of the United States. Regardless of your party affiliation or political beliefs, I think we all ought to commit to a more perfect union.

A few of my favorite points:

  • You have power in creativity. Unleash it. Wield it.
  • Remember your immigrant roots.
  • Think critically. Act empathetically. 
  • If you're scared to speak up, you must.
  • Manifest passion, respect, love, and open-mindedness.

Thank you for creating this, Sam and Matt
