The times they are a changing-
The Sixties was a time of activism and push-pull on social issues. The Sixties enabled youthful energy to 'full court press' against the establishment and move it all to the left & out of Vietnam.
So, what's the rub.
Trump - the new Administration is so very toxic & effectively dummied down America.
Shocking - compelling & now - urgent!!!
What is it about a man, who comports to be a leader & admits to "Not reading books"?
What is it about a man, who "loves everyone" & rushes to shake President Obama's hand - while his wife struggles to exit the car and balance and gift and make herself presentable - alone. No extended hand from her husband, the new leader of USA?
What is it about a man, who cannot appreciate nuanced diplomacy and runs off at the mouth through a child's platform of 'twitter' feed to express himself?
What is it about a man, who is unable to reflect on his own core values and unable to do so for the nation?
What is it about a man, who mocks others on the world stage and without apology becomes defensive about his own bad behavior?
What is it about a man, who is emboldened to grab at women & boost of his virility?
Most of the nation cries out in shame and shock!
Most of the nation has been mobilized to hit the streets in protest!
I am one of those to do so!
I am one of those who did so!
I felt tired and bone-weary that we are not where we should be in a civilized society.
I am now rejuvenated to move this forward for the betterment of our society; of our nation; of our communities; for our families; for our neighbors; for our international friends & foes -alike.
I am re-energized to support and in solidarity with those who move forward with core values, with values and a sense of self that translates to a sense for others.
I am the New Activist in a Challenging World!
I am the older Warrior in a World that will Listen!
I am the experienced Protester - recalling the Sixties with a renewed purpose!
I am the Voice of the Many!
I will be Heard!
I will effectuate Change!
I will Stand Up!
