From the Book: “Hold someone’s hand”

I selected the phrases for my coloring book to say what I thought might be most important to others within the activist community.  But because the coloring book simply has the coloring pages without commentary, I thought I might use this venue to elaborate a bit on why I chose to include what I did.

“Hold someone’s hand.”

We hold hands for connection, for comfort, to show affection, to demonstrate a bond.  It’s a powerful gesture, and the reasons we hold hands are all the things we should be building more of in our work to better the world.

Whether we’re the ones seeking comfort or connection or the ones offering it, the hand holding is important.
