The Truth About Snowflakes

snowflake, liberal, politics

Being called a “snowflake” these days is supposed to be a derogatory term, insinuating someone is so delicate they get offended too easily. Being a “snowflake” is supposed to mean someone feels so special and unique they are entitled to special treatment. Being a “snowflake” is supposed to mean someone’s not resilient.

It’s being used now to label and dismiss people who do not support the nation’s current administration and do not support this administration’s actions and agenda. Here’s the truth though about snowflakes. Don’t underestimate snowflakes even though they may look gentle and delicate in nature.

You find snowflakes in the fiercest of weather conditions and circumstances, and that’s precisely when they shine. Get enough snowflakes together, and they can wreak havoc, they’re a force to be reckoned. Blizzards, avalanches, slippery roads, school/work closings. Snowflakes, at the core, are just water particles, and they can take many forms that can change land formations–cold harsh ice, strong tidal waves, pouring freezing rain, hard sleet. Anyone exposed to harsh winters knows to respect snow. Work with the snow, and it is beautifully breathtaking and fun. If you don’t respect the nature of snow, accidents abound and you’re cold and miserable.

When the landscape is blanketed with snow, there’s a sense of peace, tranquility, hope–millions of snowflakes coming together to do what they do naturally.

Don’t underestimate a snowflake, and what one snowflake is capable of. And certainly do not underestimate the power of millions of snowflakes together. The weather forecast is calling for one hell of a snowstorm.

    Two more. They don’t stand up to heat, and retain the boot print of anyone who steps on them.

  4. Hi, someone just gave me a printout of this blog. Besides the fact that it is awesome, I want to tell you that I’m a member of a group of Boston area artists who have been making snowflake pins to be the Badge of the Resistance. We have handed out over 10,000 at this point and we’re gearing up for the next series of marches in January. If you’re interested, I can send you a batch. Each snowflake comes with this text attached:

    The Power of One Snowflake…
    What do we do now? In addition to everything else, wear a snowflake.—The Badge of the Resistance.
    “Snowflake” has been used to represent a woman or person of little or no consequence. One snowflake may appear fragile, but snowflakes together are blizzards, avalanches, glaciers. Our power is in our organization and we will not be dismissed. We “Snowflakes” are part of the storm.
    In addition to wearing the small snowflake every day, you can buy snowflake t-shirts, etc. with sayings like, “This Snowflake doesn’t melt.” “This Snowflake is running for office.” “This Snowflake is made of steel.” ALL PROFITS GO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. The website is CAFEPRESS.COM/SNOWFLAKESTORM

    Anyway, sorry I’m reading this so late! Keep resisting! And here’s to a 2018 filled with peace, love, impeachment, and a blue House and Senate!
