"Rejoice for Anastasia" ink illustration by Carina Wharton

Lately negative images and conversations about the state of the world have dominated headlines in the media. There are broadcast a lot of problems that cannot be ignored such as police brutality, racism, and inexcusable acts of vengeance ensued by cilizians against officers. The messages of hate uttered by media personnel such as American presidential candidate Donald Trump, question societies morals and whether their is an unpathonmal desire in most Americans to revert to practices of segregation and discrimination based on race, gender, class, and sexuality. “Rejoice for Anastasia” is a reminder to allow moments of happiness to flourish and resonate. If everyone was compassionate and emphatic most issues could be resolved. Reverting to outdated beliefs and practices will set societies accomplishments back 60 years. Mutual respect is essential in accepting that love is love, black lives matter, and that stereotypes of any sort are marginalizing. Maintain an open mind and be willing to learn.
