Image by ashley rose,
whether it be for a loss,
or in my case,
all of us are thinking of each other today.
i’ve been inspired by others, and i hope to inspire in return
one hundred and ninety seven times i have chosen
to live my life in a way of those who inspired me
"If you decide to write the word "love" on your arm today, please remember the heart of the matter. The goals were never "cute" or "fashion". Our title, "to write love on her arms", was born as a goal and it remains a goal. We’re inviting people to fight for their lives and for the lives of their friends. We’re inviting people to believe better things.
If you want to help us spread the word about hope and help, we would be honored. If you want to tell people that they need other people, that every story matters – again, we would be honored. We say these things because we believe them to be true, and because too many people live alone under other lies.
Let’s continue to fight to figure out what this word "love" means. Let’s aim for how it looks and how it sounds – maybe something like humility and confidence and kindness, maybe honesty and compassion…
We’re in all these things together. It’s bigger than cute and it’s louder than fashion.
Thanks always for your support.
You matter very much.
jamie and the entire TWLOHA team"
