I love people. I mean, sure, “people” can be trying, exasperating, infuriating…but screw that. I love people. People are lovely, funny, delightful, inspiring, amazing, talented, surprising, and sometimes even awesome.
I’m not just talking about my family, friends, and loved ones. I’m talking about people everywhere. From those little, tiny acts of kindness strangers pay to one another to amazing art painted on the side of a building.

There is so much more about humanity that is wonderful than there is horrible, and I think it’s important to take the time to remember that. We are under an assault of hateful, bigoted, narcissistic, self-dealing and self-serving bullshit, not to mention ever-mounting assaults on facts, truth, and even science—and that’s just the liar-in-chief in the White House. It’s unprecedented in my lifetime, and I lived through the miasma of negativity that was the 1970s.
I say, fuck the assholes. They suck, but most people are awesome. Most people are lovely. Most people aren’t assholes at all! And it’s good to take stock of all the awesome things and people around us every day. I love people, now more than ever.
