This week just gone had a huge impact, not just on the United States and the rest of the world are feeling the repercussions of the results of the US Presidential Election. Since Wednesday the feeling among my friends and I in California have been of complete despair. Still, my husband shared an article with me that sums it up and it all boils down to capitalist greed – worth a read! Let us all feel the grief, and then we must get up and fight for the change that we want to happen.
One of my main concerns is for humanity and the behaviors modeled by this so called President-elect of people thinking that it is OK to basically bully people, just to get what you want. The time is now for an uprising and if anything it will make us fight harder for what we all believe in, then we can finally stick it to the man through sheer grit and determination. Being trodden on by others can only give you strength to stand up for what you believe in.
As an environmentalist, I am upset with is the destruction of well laid environmental policies that so many people have been put in place, only now to be destroyed just like a huge wave on a sandcastle. Again we will work together as a community and fight for what we believe in. And may the odds be in our favor (The Hunger Games, Trilogy).
Still, the tragedy of this vast imbalance around the world of capitalist greed will create a dissident mass who are willing to fight for our rights. And in the words of Public Enemy let’s Fight the Power.
On a final note, here is my booth from Saturday at the Holiday Bazaar at the local community center. People working together mostly women entrepreneurs creating their own businesses – selling on a local level and supporting the community and those around them. In amongst the vendors I worked with a multitude of nations working together to create their own confident path to freedom in their own way.
What I believe is important as a community we work together as a whole to create a society where no one is left behind and we all support one another to achieve our goals – maybe this sounds quite romantic, though all is fair in love and war.
