-to whom/from who-
We state that taking care of each other, nourishing another and ourselves is an act of resistance, is an act of defiance.
We care about the ritual of feeding one another.
We care about what nourishes our souls.
We care about abundance and scarcities.
We need to learn to care in the right ways.
