Have experienced sexism, racism, colorism. I have been marginalized, excluded, forgotten, and dismissed. I'm surprised when I'm included in any conversation; but never surprised that I'm not remembered as if I'm always a new. After 18 years in the industry new for me stands for Not Exemplary Work.

I see things have gotten worse during this election season. I see that the doors of a lot of hearts have been flung wide open and people aren't really surprised by what they've found inside. I'm not surprised (see beginning). The injustice is deep. Our indifference is crippling, and the anonymity of  social media is enabling. We love dead victims and outrageous bullies. We value shock over substance. Don't blame the two out-of-touch candidates. They're the prize in the box, not the bitter crackerjacks. But you know what? Life goes on. Ugly though it may be, ugly as it has ever been. What will you do? I didn't ask what you're hoping some elitist will gift to you, what will YOU do? Will you write that book? Will you draw that page? Will you start that project? Will you commit to making your next day better? In spite of it all I now that I can and that I will because I have always done so (see beginning).

My name is Alitha Evelyn Martinez. I am the first generation of my family born in American to immigrant parents, and I AM NOT AFRAID.
