Marching this weekend? Consider taking a few minutes to think about why YOU march. If nothing else, it will make it easier to determine what goes on your poster. 😀 dedicated to my mother and her father, who lived these sentiments. (This is my mom- third from the left- with her friends in Hampton, VA. This was taken in the mid 1940s)
I will not pretend to know
What’s best for you, but
I will stand by you.
I will not be so presumptuous to
SPEAK AT YOU
Or Explain YOUR TRUTH
Because it is not my own.
I only know my own.
I will stand up for you,
When hate is spewed and
When legislation is skewed,
Because others refuse to understand
The essence of who you are and who were born to be.
When they try to marginalize or erase the importance of your being
I will stand with you and I will march.
Because you matter, and because
You will march for me.
