Avatars Against Trump

Avatars Against Trump
For over a year I watched the vitriol.
For the past two months I felt the hate.
In the last week I lost much hope.
Today I was told to wait for change.
But instead of waiting, I will fight.
I will fight for justice and negate the hatred.
I am American.
I’m here to stay.

A big thank you to Hamlet Au of New World Notes for encouraging this Avatars Against Trump movement and to Linden Lab for their supportive statement.

UPDATE – 02/04/17: This movement has also been reported on by Motherboard, Vice’s science and tech blog: Second Life Users Are Protesting With Their Avatars
