The Horror, The Horror

Ai Weiwei, White House (1999)
I will not mistake despair for doing something.
I will volunteer more.
I will protest more.
I will be more of an activist.
I will use my privilege to help those who don't have the same.
I will show solidarity, in person as well as online.
I will advocate for good art that is a positive force.
I will not support bad art/people/things/institutions.
