For those of you questioning why women from the march didn't vote please consider the following: #1 Hillary won the popular vote with over 3 million votes, she lost not because of lack of votes, but because of how the electoral college works #2 men, children and people under voting-age were in attendance #3 53% of white women voted for Trump. Instead of questioning those who are actively participating in our democracy it would behoove you to really think about what you've done to help the cause. #thatisall#womensmarch#wemustdobetter#equalityforall#womensmarchonwashington
Today I marched alongside 750,000 incredible people, and I am proud to take the streets and stand with these two rad, strong as fuck, amazing, brilliant humans who have so immensely inspired me ever since we became friends at Cal in 2008, that magnificent year Obama won the election, the year of hope, the year of change. If you've ever wondered why I never seem to rest, it's because I have studied hard, worked hard, groaned and complained hard -- but loved even harder with people like Sunny and Matt. #whyImarch
To this incredible family-the likes of which I fear I'll not see again-thank you. And I'm sorry. #Wethepeople, once hopeful and promising, have done this to you. Because while hopeful, promising, compassionate and intelligent-we the people of our great nation are also incredibly selfish and afraid. We loved you so and wanted so much for you to stay in our lives-that we created the only situation to make that happen. Had we elected anyone else, you would have been gone, we would have been sad, but comfortable and "ok" in our "ok" lives. Now we are not ok. We are upset and-while still hopeful, compassionate and intelligent-we are no longer comfortable staying silent. We will not let your legacy be tarnished or forgotten. We will stand and progress together! We will remain united and STRONG. Because that is how you taught us to be! #THANKSOBAMA#weMUSTdobetter#STRONGERTOGETHER#riseUP#BEthechange
It is a shame that our school systems have to do fund raiders just for the kids to have things. The education system for public school funding it's so wrong. How are the kids suppose to be afforded opportunities for anything when things as simple as gym equipment cannot be funded. This is a message I received from my son school. It saddens my heart for the kids. If you would like to pledge please let me know. Things have to get better for the public school system.#concernedparent#betterschoolsystem#wemustdobetter#imout
Some days there is absolutely no humor to be had, even with the best attempts...
As i am forced 2 watch parents endure the unimaginable...faced with decisions no parent shud ever face I'm left feeling hallow inside.
I know for those who have never expierenced this it's difficult 2 understand & maybe it makes it easier 2 turn the other cheek, to feel so sad but to be able to put that away & go about your normal routine. I'm asking that today not b that day...all those reading this im asking, begging really that u stop & say a special prayer for a little boy & his family...a prayer for a mom being forced 2 make choices that we all hope we ourselves will never face. Do an act of kidness in this boys merit today...something anything but please don't let those of us who spend countless hrs alone in hospitals tucked away from all of "you" feel alone & forgotten...not on this day...
Epic fail from the folk at Jeopardy, ABC World News (Now) and the contestants. Answer:Who is John Lewis? Look at this picture. This is Medgar Evers. #wemustdobetter
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." MLK. It's 2017: Friends, strangers, acquaintances, family, lovers, it's 2017. I am looking at MYSELF first. I am looking at other white folks. White folks specifically, we must do better. Educate yourselves. Find out how you can be useful, connect with local BLM chapters. If you have the means to, donate.

There's a little house in town with a frequently changing sign in the window. This is the current offering. His other window has a hole - where someone threw a rock through it. #mlk#wecandobetter#wemustdobetter
