Inspirational Captain America Art

This is a repost from Zack Dolan Art. These are his words, not mine, though I am in agreement with him and the sentiment behind this.

Hate has no allegiance to any party or person. Hate does not care who you are or where you're from or what you believe. Hate only appropriates these things for its own ends and uses the weak minded to spread itself disguised as political or religious beliefs. Hate does not need a reason, only an opportunity.

It's not about politics. It's not about who you voted for or what party you subscribe to. It's not about red or blue. It's about being a decent human being. it's that simple.

No one needs to be told their fears are unjustified by those who do not have to be afraid themselves. They need our Empathy.

No one needs to be told their lives are secondary to a political ideology or that there are bigger problems to worry about than their fear and pain. They need our Humanity.

No one needs virtue signaling platitudes or hollow gestures. They need our Action.

They need us to BE there. They need us to show them that there are still those who have not given in to hate or fear or despair that are ready to fight to make sure they don't have to either. They need us to step up on that line and stare right into the face of evil and hate and show them that we will not let it take away their hope, their rights or their lives. To show them that when they need us we will BE THERE to say "No further. Not Today."
