In The Aftermath

“Yet what greater defeat could we suffer than to come to resemble the forces we oppose in their disrespect for human dignity?” 
― Ruth Bader Ginsburg, My Own Words

And though She is gone we will rise 
from the black choke of oppression 

Our femininity worn with dignity  
Our strength derived from tenderness 
Our perseverance adorned with nobility
Our hearts tempered from roaring flames
Our capable hands will forge a new beginning

And in the aftermath of our darkest night
We will rise ~We will fight ~ We will win

  1. We lost a truly great one in RGB. She was a stellar human being. Wonderful write here! I pray we rise above this darkness encircling us Linda. I don’t think I will last another presidential term, and I do not want to bid adieu with this evil asshat continuing his ruin of this country.
