“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
While at the University of Washington in 1970, my husband and I joined the student protest that closed I-5, on May 5. Along with several friends, we were there to object to the illegal and inhumane war our country was waging on Vietnam and Cambodia.

On January 21, 2017, with two girlfriends, I attended the Women’s March in Portland, Oregon. From his first appearance as a candidate to this very moment, Mr. Trump has made it clear he is not qualified to be President of the United States.
In the ensuing years, often I have said, “things will change in the USA, when young people are angry enough to march in the streets.” Now it is happening, and I salute those who put their feet where their heart and head are.
We no longer accept going in circles as leadership.
We’re sick and tired of being tangled by lame old reasons why not justice for all?
The old is unravelling, and we find ourselves on a path to a changing future.
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.
Thank you Tina for another soul-stretching photography challenge!
Yes there are some serious parallels between our war protests and today’s environment Lindy. Thank you for your thoughtful and creative response this week
Thank you, Tina. It was a soul-searching stretch when I decided to make a statement with this post. Would have been so much easier to simply post the squiggles and meanderings of Alloniscus!
With you all the way Lindy
Millennials and Gen Z-ers will change the world. I am so proud of these young people! (The MLK quote predates the 20th C., in fact it predates the Civil War. In its original form, it’s in the writing of Unitarian abolitionist Theodore Parker.)
Wow, I didn’t know that history! I am very proud of the youth of our country as well.
Thank you for visiting and commenting!
