NOW WHAT?

Begin the healing.

Be gentle with yourself and others.

Don’t contribute to the cesspool of hatred, name-calling, and hopelessness.

Move on.

Vow to yourself:

Go quiet. Stay strong. Refuse to be defeated by hate.

mf-20

mf-3

It is time for us to pull on our oxygen masks and prepare for a bumpy ride.

But we do not give up.

We do not run away.

We do not lose HOPE.

mf-17

We are strong.

We are resilient.

We are resourceful.

We will survive.

mf-15

We are a tribe.

Of loving, caring, creative, soul-full women.

We have endured much.

We can endure more.

But we must stick together.

Nourish ourselves.

Prepare for a long siege.

Pack lunches, bring flowers, and make music.

Our children and grandchildren are watching.

Will we be lost, swept under, made powerless?

Or will we rise up!

Will we sing!

Will we keep at the tasks of healing and caring and creating and spreading our love?

Or did he win our souls too?

mf-10

We are warriors!

We are renegades!

We are sage women!

Rise up singing, laughing, dancing, and praying.

But RISE UP!!!

It is our time.

We are called forward.

We are the tribe.

We are the hope.

We are the elders.

Get up!

Come forward.

Rejoice in your heart.

Love is what we make.

Hate is what we leave behind.

I am with you.

We are in this together.

I love you.

You are my tribe.

Here is my hand.

Let us go on together.

  1. Thank you for the call to peaceful arms, open arms, arms to hold those who need held. Definitely a call to stop being that which I/We railed against. Let’s not become the haters. We don’t have to like the situation or the person but we do have to stop with the vitriol. Rise up and be the kind of person you are proud of, the kind you want to honor because of their spirit and the kindness they exude.
