Something momentous happened yesterday evening.
People cried tears of joy. And, others wept tears of defeat. And some were overwhelmed with hope. And some felt kicked in the stomach by despair. And some were elated while others were angry.
To be honest, I think I felt a little bit of all of that, except the anger. One thing I don’t feel is angry.
All day, thoughts and emotions clamored around inside me as I tried to think of some way to respond to this ground-breaking legislation, but the more I thought about it, the less appropriate it seemed for me to say anything at all. Instead, I thought about all those things I was feeling and how so many people were feeling such different things, and I thought…I wish there were a place for all the disparate thoughts and feelings to come together and find a place of dialogue, for us all to have a voice at this moment in time.
So, I’m opening up the forum. Please share your voice in the comments section of this post. I feel blessed so often by the diversity of my readership, and I want to open provide a place for dialogue.
What are your thoughts? What are your feelings?
Please, let’s keep this as a safe haven for all. Be respectful. Every voice is precious.
