Happy Weekend, 1.20.17

happy weekendHere we go. As the week ends, a new phase begins for the United States. I hope our society shifts from rheotoric and anger to connection and respect. We have a long way to go, though, I fear.

How do we balance that fear? With hope, I think, and with our voices. We speak up when we can, we look out for one another, and we teach our kids to think critically and be active in our democracy. I’m working on this by attending the Boston Women’s March with my daughter tomorrow. We’re marching because women’s rights are human rights, and because it’s our responsibility to support those who have been disenfranchised and shut out. We’re marching because I want my daughter to understand that her voice matters.
