posting today who are doing so in anger, rage... who wish we aren't saying half the words we are saying. We're not normally like this. I know I hate the way I've come across today... but you know what... it's righteous. It's real. It may not be pleasant. I may not like it. Those around me may not like it. They may prefer the grandma who takes care of everything and everyone, instead of this red-eyed, angry hellion on wheels. But this hellion on wheels is gonna be one of many who'll do everything she can to make sure my female progeny have better chances than I did growing up. I worked like hell to make opportunities happen for myself and my daughter and the women around me. I ain't gonna quit now. I'll walk hand in hand with any sister who wants a better world for herself and the women who come after her. I'll even join hands with the men, like my husband, who work twice as hard for those same goals.

In fact, I feel bad for men like him. He listens to me, he feels my pain... the pain of all the women who are crying and screaming since last night. And he feels like he can't even join us in our anger. He feels, because of his color and his gender, he's the picture of the problem when all along he's marched with us for our rights. I feel so lucky to have found him and have had his support in all I've wanted to do all my life, even when it's meant putting aside a dream or two of his.

We have the right and privilege to scream and rage with all we have at this moment. If there's a march of sisters near you, and you are able to join, I pray you... join. Let our numbers be known! Vote this year like it was a presidential year like no other! (like last year!) Let the Repugs know we are NOT going back... not now... not EVER. Let the Talibangelicals know this country was never founded as a Christianist country of any flavor.
