Contagion

“Hate is contagious. A few seconds after Donald Trump has told me something hateful, somebody else repeats it. He has legitimized what people only dare say in their kitchens and bedrooms.” – Jorge Ramos

When there’s hatred unraveling threads
encircling love, it embeds
in the heart and the mind;
there, entirely entwined,
like a virulent virus, it spreads.

I do believe that we have to make resisting our own creeping feelings of hatred a part of the resistance.

Susan Eckenrode, 5/9/17
