Barack Obama's Speech on Race - New York Times
I read this before turning on the news, in order to experience it for myself. It mirrors everything I have been making speeches on for the last fifteen years: the need to end divisiveness, to move toward openness, to cultivate the resource of empathy. To truly change rather than follow the same tired back and forth of battling oppressions.
I think I won't turn on the news today. I will just sit with Barack's hopes and dreams, and refuse to listen to a political machine laying in wait to slice them to pieces.
Hope you are all thriving.
Peace and love forever,
PS The gray words are always links--so the speech is accessible from the top of the page.
