On July 20th in the heart of Kansas, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood with Bernie Sandors and Congressional candidate James Thompson and delivered a heart full speech of connection and hope born of action and the deep discipline of showing up. It is not an accident Alexandria stood before the audience of Kansas constituents to deliver these words into the deep river of connection that runs through the heart of Kansas and bends toward love and justice and doing the right thing in community.
May you be inspired by her words, may you find a way to expand the conversations you are having and show up where love is being discussed with dignity and honor and respect for all.
.@ocasio2018's full pitch for @JamesThompsonKS: "We all have one more door knock in us... This is a defining moment for our nation... if we knock on our neighbor's door, I am confident that what is right will win in the United States of America" pic.twitter.com/VgCLymDagF— People For Bernie (@People4Bernie) July 20, 2018
Bernie Saunders is a bridge between the idealism of the original Love Revolution of th 60's to where we stand in the 21st Century. What the world needs now, as it did then is love. He knew Bobby Kennedy and his vision for the world and the fight it required to complete love's mission. This quote lives and breathes in what Bernie Saunders speaks of -- “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
