One week ago. I was there.
This was the easy part.
Now we have to go home and organize in our own communities. We have to hang on to what we felt last Saturday, whether we were in Washington DC, at our local marches or just watching on television. We must remember the solidarity we felt, especially when the work gets hard or boring or someone pisses you off or when you think it should be done a different way or some person or committee screwed something up or when it looks like we are going in twenty different directions and we can’t settle on a course of action.
Or. Or. Or.
And to be perfectly frank, I’m not worried about THEM dividing us. I’m worried about us taking care of that all by ourselves.
We are on the same side. Hold on to that. And be kind to each other. We need ALL of us. And if some of us aren’t as woke as others, if some of us put our foot in our mouth, if some of us are unintentionally oblivious, please, give us the benefit of the doubt.
There is so very much at stake.
