Turtles Against Trump
- Here's an effort I learned about at a recent knitting group:
- Here you can find a pattern for a cute little turtle, and you can even nominate someone to receive a handmade tiny turtle. This concept was born of surprise over the unexpected election results, following a sleepless night afterwards. It's basically a small form of peaceful protest, and an attempt to make a positive contribution to our community. A way to share and connect, to thank people who are making positive contributions, while creating a bit of cuteness in the process. And let's face it - we could use some extra cuteness in our lives, especially now.

- Despite the confrontational-sounding name, I really don't intend to be divisive. I am, however, deeply concerned about the damage Trump could cause in the coming years, and want to express that our community and our rights are important. I also want to share tiny turtles to thank those who are doing good (see Get a Turtle for tiny turtle nominations).
- Why turtles?
- Many of the qualities associated with turtles will be important for weathering the time ahead of us, especially patience and peaceful persistence.
- My purpose is simple:
- To slowly spread cuteness and kindness one tiny turtle at a time.
