UPDATED: 30 March 
New York Times QUOTATION OF THE DAY

“The truth is, us kids, we just want to be the voice for the people we lost, or for people who don’t think they have a voice. I am prioritizing this over college right now, I am prioritizing people’s lives over my education.”

SAMANTHA FUENTES, who was wounded in the school shooting last month in Parkland, Fla., on whether to begin college in the fall or continue the campaign to promote more rigorous gun safety laws.

“In the absence
of strong political movements
for human rights,

the active process of bearing witness

inevitably gives way to the
active process of forgetting.
Judith Lewis Herman, Trauma and Recovery (1992)

Hudson is a victim of gun violence too. Her mother, brother and nephew were all murdered in 2008. They were shot to death. She is pictured hugging Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez as 11-year-old Naomi Wadler, one of the event speakers, looks out towards the crowd

Our America has become a “reality show” watching/reading about the lives of others – passively.

X

The America of  now does not witness what is real – real lives.  Living life as”personas” on social media platforms  aware of being watched – not witnessed.

X

What happens to empathy if one’s lives are circuited/hijacked by what other people think? We are hardwired to smell truth like dogs. Sacred listening is the morning of hope.

X

What happens to becoming a life harvested from one’s vision quest, dark nights of the soul?

X

Living is complicated. Living a life where you rise to your TRUE North and to know your integrity is incomparable currency. Welcoming those who rise and whose word=action is GOLD is sustenance.

X

We are and become the stories of our lives. We choose to honor and respect our souls by selecting those who SEE you and welcome the bone, marrow, blood and heart of  who you are and as you sail on the seas of living life – y/our blessed voyage.

X

Our children live the reality of lockdown. Our children are enduring the secrets, betrayals, hustling, deceptions and lies of our government.  

X

Our children dared because their torment was overwhelming. Our role as adults to protect/shield them were blind to the shattering of their innocence.

X

Irony: 60 Minutes’ interview with Stormi Daniels follows the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES. Watching v. witnessing. “Reality show”  voyeurism v. call to action.

X

Our HOPE has been taken hostage – our lamentation and our complicity. We need a  WWII’s DUNKIRK to retrieve our soul. The dialectics of  COURAGEACTIONEMPATHYFURY’SHOPE.

X

I marched yesterday. Yes, of course. Yes, absolutely. Yes, because I live now. To witness the current, the voltage, of children march to the Capitol’s steps was deafening. To hear their child voices pleading eviscerated me and my friend. The event was somber and cried out a NEED to atone by ACTION for OUR children’s unforgivable suffering.

X

 

Truth RISES. RADICAL Hope. Sacred listening.  That is the JOY of being ALIVE!

Show me YOUR soul.

NOW.
