Almost a month now, but Indeed, what happened in March is a beginning, a new day; yes, each day is new, but that day was quite different. Extraordinary young leaders have begun to inspire a nation. It was historic, this will continue. And, I feel hope again. I am encouraged that there will be change, that there will be a uniting of those interested in decency and democracy. And, it took the courage of teen agers to lead the way. Yes, I watched the demonstrations on March 24, and was amazed. I was impressed, enthralled and so proud of our youth. Their emphasis was on unity, on love, and especially on stopping violence. They exuded intelligence, were extremely articulate, eloquent, passionate and well informed. The demonstrations were well organized and peaceful. The First Amendment utilized with respect. These were not youth going off “half-cocked”, these were young people with a maturity many adults do not possess. Myself included. They had faced a tragedy that most of us are fortunate not to have faced, yet far too many have experienced. I am hoping that this momentum continues, that this endeavor will not end. It sounds as if they will have the courage and impetus to continue. And so, I am hoping that our day for democracy will return, that our nation will survive in spite of vitriol and lies levied against many constituents. Our democracy will continue – our rule of law will endure – good must overcome. I am also thinking of the legacy of Barbara P. Bush – hers was a life led with respect. May we all continue to keep her memory, her inspiration in our hearts so that it will be impetus to continue the fight for our democracy. This would definitely be honoring her legacy of honesty, strength, love and pride of nation. This is my hope; I am only a small voice……..
