#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice

This is the English word I want to get tattooed on my wrist. It means “to keep breathing even though the water rises all around you.” English is such a mystical exotic language. They can fit so much meaning into so small a word.
