LOL!! You can guess who I voted for?? Would I be here if I had not voted for Obama? Not that I agree with him on all issues.. if fact I disagree on many. But there is at least now hope that we may be heard. I am still struggling to write what many of us in the US just experienced on an emotional level. Some of the most cynical were weeping. Not at Obama the man. But at what he symbolizes. When I was very small I lived in Kansas City, where there were separate drinking fountains for Blacks and Whites. The symbol of the change that this election represents is very hard to express.
People were dancing in the streets, spontanous expressions.. not again because of Obama, but because we have had hope renewed for a world of Peace and Justice. The work has only begun. But there has been an enormous shift
Si Se Puede/ Yes We Can.. were the words we sang 40 years ago trying to get basic rights for Farmworkers in the US,, led by Chavez and his powerful message of dignity and non violence. I think those words should be translated and shouted all over this world.
I have few resources at the moment.I am getting a box of emergency food in a few hours. But I can speak, I am alive, I am privileged to be here, to listen , learn, and try to help in any way I can.
Always ground in the Heart of Fierce Compassion
Thank you for adding me as a friend. I hope to learn much from you.
Those of us who live in the US are hungry for ways we can address and change our own Government's Policy that is perpetuating War in the Mid East . We mmay now have a window for change. Yes We Can
