Solidarity

No matter what you political affiliation, it is hard to steer a conversation away from the Trump phenomenon in America. People are concerned for the future, and few are jubilant. Democracy has a failing in that everyone has a choice to vote, but if voting is not compulsory, is it really indicative “of the people, by the people, for the people?”

When time become difficult, it is the girls, the women, and the Mothers who often worry about the children and the future, and yet it is conversely, often the men who are invariably in positions of authority, who decide everyone’s future!

We are not at war, but we have every right to be concerned about the future.

Clearly many people are, looking at the map of women’s marches around the world.img_13831.jpg

A Danish writer, Andrea Heiberg, penned the following to express her concerns:

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE II

Who’s the lady with the torch

Boko Haram hates to see?

Who’d bid me welcome

if it should be?

 

She’s my independent friend who

voices freedom

loving

care.

 

She’s still standing

sending out hope

to me

and

my sisters in

Afghanistan,

Nepal,

Nigeria,

Syria

and elsewhere

everywhere

when not grabbed by her pussy.

 

So go

Pearl,

go.
