Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

SHUT IT DOWN

I can die happy for our country now!

I feel more hopeful than ever, more energized, more deeply deeply moved to be out in the streets with such an informed, determined, passionate, outspoken activists with young womyn raising their voices to be heard - without electronic amplification - over the electric energy of hundreds of activists, leading the way! 

In fact, the other day, when I thought I was only going to march for a few blocks and ended up putting in probably 6 miles, I thought, now I can die happy for our country - the uprising has begun in earnest. 

The ones on the street now have a clear and intense understanding about the truths of our country. And they understand the vital need for short term sacrifice for the long term good. 

These people on the streets are driven by rage, yes, at murder, at injustice, at police violence, racism - but more than that, they are driven by deep abiding love and hope. 

They could be choosing to go to work, or classes, or tune out, but they are knowingly choosing to be out in the streets to SHUT IT DOWN!!!!

So much love, I'm needing like 3 or 4 hours of sleep to re-energize! And then out to SHUT IT DOWN!
