Celebrating with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and connecting with others who share their celebrations, too.
And I celebrate that we persevered and marched in the sixties for Civil Rights, thinking that it wouldn't get better, and it did. Now it's time to fight and march again to make change.
From FB: There is solace in going about our daily lives, and there is that which pushes us to action, to find something good to hold onto when so much is troubled around us. I am thinking of that "day before", the one where life was good for Philando Castle, Alton Sterling and the police officers, all doing their lives with family and friends, adding to others' lives in good ways. And now it is the "day after". . . and time to step up to make everyone's lives matter, because those lost cannot do that now. We need to do it for them. A Poetry Friday friend posted this poem today. Here is her link: https://kerirecommends.com/…/…/poetry-friday-in-summer-time/ And here are the four lines that touched me, as I hope they touch you, and help you do well with your lives today and tomorrow, too!
"The summer sounds, and summer sights,
That set a restless mind to rights
When grief and pain and raging doubt
Of men and creeds have worn it out;" Paul Lawrence Dunbar
I celebrate and keep on for these children, for all children. How can I not!
