Honestly, there are so many things to remind myself of, to be inspired by, to be motivated to never give up. Yeah, the Electoral College just put into the presidency the most uninformed, racist, misogynist, serial lying, narcissist we have ever seen. But then I remember the power of us working together, me and you and so many others who share our passions and priorities. And the resolve rises up within me.
I went to North Dakota this past week to be present with the Standing Rock Nation and other indigenous peoples who are acting as water protectors of the Missouri River against the very real threat of the Dakota pipeline that will run fracked oil under said water sources. It is literally a crime, breaking treaty and civil law, but also a travesty. I wanted to share some of my experiences with you.
