I gotta be honest about something for a second.  

I've been seeing so much division in the wake of the United States' presidential election last November, and it's carried through the holiday season into the new year.   Our media is absolutely saturated with left and right wing reporters, all of whom spin the news just to get ratings, rather than telling the truth and reporting on facts.  

Social media has blown up to a point where political platforms and soap boxes have become the new "it" thing.   And all for what? To prove a point?  To showcase how different we all are?  To exemplify that if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything?  To give the world yet another reason to dislike all Americans? 

I've gotten overly saturated, I suppose.  I've thought about just taking a nice long break from social media for a while.  

But then I hop onto DA for the first time in literally months.  I open my page up to thousands of notifications telling me just how creative and incredible people are on here.   How art is celebrated, and not politicized.  People come together over the things that they love, and enjoy, and there's no hatred behind any of it.   No political agendas being driven by unchecked bloggers and overzealous lobbyists creating cess pools of hate.   None of it.  

Instead I see people favoriting and commenting on costumes, photography, digital art, sketches, and writing.  Forms of art that are all so different, yet share similar traits.   Everything is backed by the passion that we all share here, and the love that we have found for different cultures through art.  This is the kind of stuff that I want to see more of on a daily basis.   Because it makes my heart happy, to see humanity coming together for another purpose other than to protest a political agenda, or to cry out at the injustice of an action taken by a political leader...all things that we have absolutely no control over.   

I wanted to share a little piece of my mind and heart with you all, and to tell whoever is reading this silly little journal post that I'm thankful for you.  

Yes.  

YOU.

I may not know your name or have ever met you in person, but I am thankful to have found a way to connect with you.  A way that is positive, uplifting, and happy.   So please do me a favor, and keep being amazing.   Keep posting breathtaking photos, incredible cosplay, talented digital art, AMAZING sketches, and BOSS AF writing!  Because these are all creative things that connect us all together as humans.   Our love and our passion transcends political identity/affiliation, national boundaries, our race and ethnic backgrounds, our religious and spiritual choices, and our places of birth.   

Always remember you beautiful people, that through the dark times, you always have the capacity to find the good in others.  :heart:

Billy and Kimberly unmasked!
Our photographer asked us to take our helmets off while he was shooting us, because he said he felt that we resembled the original actors from the series.   We both were so honored!  :D
