The march from Selma to Montgomery was love in action. We do it not simply because it’s the right thing to do, but it’s love in action. That we love a country, we love a democratic society, and so we have to move our feet. – Congressman John Lewis
Like many of you, I have been glued to the TV watching politics. I also have a public relations client in the political space that offers resources and training for women interested in running for office. The founder has now been in the papers and on television all across the nation for the past month. I can’t get enough of spreading their good work, supporting the aspirations of both democratic and republican women.
I’m balancing my media consumption with getting outside as often as I can. I’m remembering the wonderful time I had with friends in New York City during the Women’s March last weekend. I took so many photographs, you will see three below.
On another note, because Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I have been thinking about love; specifically, how to love in difficult times. Congressman John Lewis talked with Krista Tippett, the host of the podcast On Being about his commitment to love in action. He specifically uses that phrase when discussing his experience working shoulder to shoulder with Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights movement. He reframes how we could think of love. And he has helped me think differently of what it means to love this country and my fellow New Yorkers from all nationalities. Give a listen when you can.
Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries. – Corita Kent
