Posts Tagged ‘Primavera amarilla’

Four years ago today, we were marching in the streets of Oaxaca — part of a worldwide post inauguration day response to the dark days we could see coming following the results of the US election. Alas, it was far worse than our imaginations could take us. What a difference four years makes! At yesterday’s inauguration we watched as a young woman in a dazzling yellow coat, with her brilliant words and luminous spirit, captured the dark and replaced it with trust in our power to bring light to an imperfect country. Thank you Amanda Gorman for your inspiring words and presence.

And so we lift our gaze, not to what stands between us, but what stands before us

In the light of Life,
Lights in the sight of the truth! !

Living with positive morals,
Onward with the joy of life.
