I know


I didn’t march yesterday because I thought I didn’t know enough to make a stand. As I followed the news, the pictures, and the speeches all day, I realized I know more than I give myself credit…

I know that we are each important in our own way
I know that I make a difference… as a daughter, as a sister, as a wife, as a mother, as a friend,
as a woman
I know that raising my boys to be men of substance is the most important job I can have
I know that we don’t all see eye to eye but that doesn’t make anyone less important
I know that if we don’t educate our children, future generations will fall
I know that education is vital for all, not just for children but for ourselves as well
I know that we all bring something different to this world and those differences should be
honored, not feared
I know that we each have a voice
I know that we need to respect, listen to, and value each other’s voice
I know that I have been blessed with a good life
I know that we need to keep moving forward to ensure the next generations can have an even
better life
I know that even in my good fortune, hurt knows no boundaries
I know that everyone carries their own battle wounds, some just show more than others
I know that the only way to win that war is to band together, not push apart
I know that we are strong
I know that I am strong
I know that I am important
I know

I know that this is one time that we really do need to…
