My intent tomorrow, Jan 21, is to participate in the Women’s March in Los Angeles. I am so inspired by the travels of so many of my family and friends to Washington DC, as well as those who are marching in their cities and neighborhoods.
While I have been despondent about the turn of events in our political leadership, my two daughters, Tara and Leela, remind me every day that we need to #StandUp. It is a time to know our values and to find our voice. Our world, our children, our planet need our participation.
In that vein, I would like to share a song that my 15 year old daughter, Tara, wrote last year after the Orlando shootings. It is called “Stand Up” and it truly gives me hope for our future.
Tara decided to first share this song with our friends and family earlier this week on Martin Luther King’s Day, and it will be my anthem for tomorrow, and the days beyond.
