As Alice Walker says,
“Hard times call for furious dancing.”
Conflict, tension, anxiety, profound inequality, vast injustice, doubt, hopelessness…
They are ours.
But so is our insistence to combat and continue.
Otherwise their win is too big.
Our hearts, our spirits, are our patrimony and right.
We invent, we support each other through our battles, we battle, we form weapons,
