I had this thought regarding all of this stuff that’s coming into the light with sexual harassment in the workplace. It has always been there, but now women and men are speaking up. Standing up, Why? Why now?
A couple things I think:
1.) Our President (yes, I know, you maybe thinking, he is NOT my president! Well, he is, the people voted and we are in this situation), I think because of his low morals, it is making the rest of the world WAKE up to their own morals. It’s like when you go to church on Sunday and you look at the well put together pastor who has his (supposed) shit together and he or she is perceived as holy so that is good enough for you. No need for you to look inside yourself. Well, when that person on a pedestal fails, oh shit, now what do you do? Re-evaluate who you are? Can you stay at this church? Are you having a crisis with what you stand for being right or wrong? Well, I think the president does the same thing. Usually, it has been a respectable human being, so if he (not a she yet, but I’m hopeful) is failing, the mirror turns inward. Do I agree? Can I stand for this? Well, the GREAT thing is A LOT of people are saying, NO, I can’t!!
2.) My 2nd reason is Kesha! Kesha wrote a song called praying. It is about not receiving justice for sexual acts that she did not want from her producer. Her case did not win in court. But since then she released a song and thousands of people have been singing her prayers, or better yet, our prayers.
We (collectively) changed the vibration. We sang strength and power into the universe, We did it!
If you are discouraged by the political environment, take courage. We are changing the world…. One issue at a TIME.
Keep singing Ya’All
