I would rather thousands of hungry children go to bed with full tummies than punish a SNAP recipient for possibly abusing their benefits.
I would rather see Narcan readily and widely available than have any mother’s child die from a drug overdose.
I would rather see my friends and neighbors healthy and happy instead of watching them die because they can’t afford much-needed medication and/or treatment.
I would rather allow women the inherent right and dignity of autonomy over their own anatomy than see them treated as property or incubators.
I would rather harness the power of sunlight and wind than watch more pipelines cause untold destruction across our landscape.
I would rather donate my clothes and risk them being sold by unscrupulous “charitable” organizations than see a single human being shivering from lack of proper attire.
I would rather see our children guaranteed a proper education and jobs with a living wage than send them to war before they could even consider obtaining either.
I would rather be mocked for naivete than become a soulless, selfish monster.
I would rather have a clear conscience than public approval.
I would rather err on the side of kindness and compassion.
