People are protesting, challenging their governments, and more.
And here I am.
I can come here and I can
my feelings and my fears for our world.
I am approaching my six year anniversary with this blog next month and I can speak my mind in Canada and share it with anyone who comes here. I am not protesting for the world to see on screen, like Gloria Steinem or Jane Fonda are doing, both these high profile women and both in their eighties now. Instead, I keep writing it all down and I don’t quit as times grow tough.
I have the freedom to write about climate change or disability rights as civil rights or about misogyny and the men who’ve run this world long enough and brought us to where we are today. I can say the things I’m drawn to say and publish without waiting for some mighty publisher to look my way.
I can’t control what the government does or what other governments around the world do, but I can write and speak my mind and for this I’m grateful.
for this prompt word, a favourite of mine.
