I am a TBI survivor and Reiki practitioner/teacher, with family members whose conditions include developmental disabilities, autism, and chronic illness, and friends who span many colors, faiths, genders, and sexual orientations.
I march because…
I choose love over bigotry and hate
I choose kindness and compassion over narcissism and self-interest
I choose action over vengeful re-action
I choose gratitude over greed
I choose peace over anger
I choose joy over fear
I choose inclusion over exclusion
I choose Oneness over division
And I march because…
I choose to align with and support others like me who have attitudes of love, kindness, compassion, and respect, and who look toward the day when all in our country reflects those same attitudes and stands behind them.
