Melbourne, FL – November 11, 2016 – In light of the fear and uncertainty that has spread across America following this week’s election, To Write Love on Her Arms has shared a brand new post titled, “An Open Letter to Those Afraid of What Comes Next.” The letter shares one of the many messages the organization has received since Tuesday, expressing fear for LGBT youth and other minorities. In it, TWLOHA expresses the desire for their readers to remember that, however hopeless they may feel right now, they do not and will not have to endure it alone.
“If you are reading this and are feeling hopeless, please know that we’re holding the hope for you, and we will continue to do so as long as there is fear or ignorance or hatred in the world…Elections come and go. Leaders come and go. Please remember this: Love is still the most powerful force on the planet.“
