Happy Haiga Day!

If you haven't been on social media in the last few days, you may have missed the safety pin movement. It seems that a large number of incidents have occurred since November 9 that leave many feeling fearful, so, if you are ever in a situation where you fear for your safety or someone is making you uncomfortable, look around for a person wearing a safety pin. By wearing a safety pin that person has agreed to stand by you or anyone else in need of a friend.

In looking for an image of a safety pin, I also found the ad below. I decided not to use it with the poem because I think it's interesting to read in its entirety. I find it strangely ironic.


  1. Great post, Diane - and that AD? Really?!! Wow!

    1. The ad is exceptionally fitting! "has so many good points." "They are super-nickeled and never turn brassy" It's a hoot!
