Making Progress, But No Time to Rest

I worry that people are so tired of fighting (especially those who otherwise would be enjoying unfettered white & male privilege) that they will become complacent and allow gains we've made to be reversed. We can't take anything for granted. We must always work for fairness for all, and even if we were to get everything we deserve, we must remain vigilant for those who remain marginalized. Marriage equality isn't the end (as we see in AR where pre-marriage equality protections were just snatched away and in TX where the A/G is doing everything possible to protect majority prejudice over equal rights); justice work must be our life's work!
