Time to Renew, Persist and Act

The women’s marches and protest over this weekend have been dwarfed in the news cycle by the government shutdown, but do not be fooled – these demonstrations have out-surpassed all predictions and demonstrate that huge numbers of Americans realize that we cannot give up in despair, that we cannot rest, that we must, and we will, act.  This speech by Viola Davis at the DC march is, to me, a perfect inspiration.  Viola builds on the era of Jim Crow laws to make her point – but to me, we are living right now under serious threats of Rainbow Jim Crow – and as Davis says, there is a cost that we must pay to see through this.  So I am posting this here today and inviting you to take the few minutes to watch this, and renew your determination to persist as we move through this dangerous time.
