Today, in the U.S., is Memorial Day – a day we honor those who lost their lives in war. In our global political climate, I think today is especially important to reflect on how divided we have become due to race, gender, religion, etc., which starts most wars. I got this unisex shirt from @everlane to help start a conversation every time I wear it, in order to remind friends and strangers that we are all human – nothing should divide us or matter more than this simple fact. Everlane donates $5 to The American Civil Liberties Union, who work diligently to protect our constitutional rights. So far they have donated $73,000, and have had to restock their line of 100% human garments twice! We are in this together. Once we start realizing that, perhaps we will no longer need to mourn more lives on Memorial Day. Let’s start the conversation together ✊🏼
