Truth matters. A higher good for all matters. Digging deep in our research, learning how to follow the money, discerning what is propaganda and what is being left out or distorted or denied, and aligning ourselves and our belief systems and our actions with our values matters. Matters deeply. It is my perspective that it is critical for us to know Hillary Clinton's record on things such as the TPP, Keystone, Monsanto, war, Wall Street and Dark Money, and on and on. Critical. While Clinton has recently changed many of her positions, and while she does not pose the same extreme stands that the Republicans do on many issues, there still remain threads of commonalities that are deeply disturbing.
That said, we do have choices. I have been following Bernie Sanders for many years now, and he is the one candidate whose record, whose integrity and authenticity, and whose advocacy for a higher good for all has been consistent over the span of decades. We Americans need to know this.
We also need to know that regardless of who sits in the White House, each and every one of us has a responsibility to do our part in working toward a kinder and more sane, just, and peaceful world. The world is watching. And our children and grandchildren and children yet unborn in our nation and from around the world are depending on us to inform ourselves and to act on their behalf. This is especially true as we work to courageously embrace the truth about global warming and the threat it poses to us all if we do not take urgently needed action now.
As a woman entering my years as an Elder, it is especially important for me to walk my talk, to have my voice rather than be silent, to courageously inform myself and hone my skills of discernment, and - as best as I can one day at a time - to act out of wisdom and passionate caring for the well-being of all life. I do this not just for my children and baby grandson, but for all the children of all the species everywhere and for our Sacred Earth Mother.
We are all in this together. Tag, we are all it! ~ Molly
