There was a series of tweets by Lucy today in response to @WeAreLoveArmy campaign. Her initial tweet says she will forgive herself for being an arsehole (asshole) for decades which was an unusual way to start and promote the campaign. The campaign strives to ground our lives, politics and movements in an ethic of love. In other words, there is far too much hate in the world (way way way way too much hate). It's an unusual way to start off a campaign aimed at reconciliation and finding a better way in dealing with those you disagree with.
What is this About?

Every #ValentinesDay we talk about love as a personal feeling, too fickle to be a political force. But in this time of rage, I'm ready for a #revolutionarylove.
