This quote is paraphrased Goethe. But it reminds me to be my best self, even when the clock isn't running.
One way that I can use my talents for the resistance - writing. Handwritten notes have been going out to all my representatives to let them know my priorities, and now im adding in thank you notes to those doing right by their fellow citizens. Inspired by an activist friend who posted she was thanking Judge Donnelly for her emergency stay against the executive order. And then she said, "The resistance WILL be thanked via snail mail", which is absolutely perfect. I'm in.
Yesterday was certainly the most inspiring day I've experienced since the November election. Seeing everyone in DC (both at the Women's March and then around town after it) and reports of everyone in other cities filled me with awe. Women are a force. We are the resistance. And this is the beginning.
We marched with good friends from DC and the Moms Demand Action group.
And this little lady made heart cards to pass out to marchers to spread love to them (her own idea, facilitated by her awesome activist mother). It was a joy to represent with such a great group.
I can only hope all the attendees feel inspired to continue the resistance.
