Dear Anti-Vaxxer

Shared from mama @echounafraid.

“Deep breathe, I know that the labels suck, but let’s talk about HOW you got your name…⁣⁣
Most of you DID believe fully in this program and stepped up to do your part to protect the “herd”⁣⁣.
Most of you DID vaccinate, but then your babies got hurt, your children got sick. ⁣

⁣⁣Others of you headed the warnings and the cry’s for help. You LISTENED to the eye witness accounts and saw that every parent was pointing to the same perp in the line up. You listened to the stories, read the science, did the research, and made an educated decision to claim health another way. ⁣⁣
You are NOT crazy⁣⁣
you are NOT a conspiracy ⁣⁣
You are mothers and fathers, siblings and grandparents- many of you have even been injured yourself. You are eye witnesses to the the truth and image bearers to the harm that can be done.⁣
You are daily mocked, but you press on⁣⁣
You are lied about, but you speak up⁣⁣
You are wished the most horrific things, but still you rise UP and show UP each and every day.⁣⁣
You are sharing truth⁣⁣
You are chasing choice⁣⁣
You want nothing but for children to be healthy and safe and for there to be a change.⁣⁣
Never stop. No matter the label given and the words said- keep fighting for the future and advocating for the truth. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Go high when others go low and ⁣⁣
Rise up when they try and make you fall.⁣⁣
Don’t ever let the words of others define you, and don’t stay silent to avoid the name that those who still sleep will use.⁣

Someday eyes will see that you were FOR so much more than you were ever against.”
