“No Women No Cry !”
Racism is real – I have experienced it firsthand. Global warming is real – we are experiencing it. The Pandemic is real – it’s not a hoax. Science is real – it’s not fake news; Data is real – facts don’t lie. Violence & Divsion are real – we need to overcome them. Having worked in Congressional district office as an intern while at Cal, I cannot be more thrilled to see someone so REAL. Finally, someone we can get excited about ! Someone of humble origin who understands the realities of regular folks ! Someone not corrupted by material greed and hate!
Someone … intelligent !
Before all the quotes and soundbites of politics, I focus on the ordinary beauty of this human being …quotes of Kamala Harris:
My parents met when they were graduate students at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. They were both active in the civil-rights movement.
I have loved to cook since I was a child in my mother’s kitchen. If I don’t have time to cook, I’ll just read a cookbook.
My mother came from India to go to the University of California, Berkeley.
My mother cooked like a scientist. She had a giant Chinese-style cleaver that she chopped with, and a cupboard full of spices.
A family looks for ways to support and inspire one another.
I do not believe that government should be in the business of telling women what they should do with their bodies.
Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress a hundred days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.
Finally, Sanity & Integrity …
You have to see and smell and feel the circumstances of people to really understand them.
& Empathy !
I learned that Kamala means … LOTUS and we know how lotus blooms, in spite of the mud. Many of us may feel we are mired in and stuck in the mud, but … there’s hope, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
May we bloom like the lotus, at home in muddy waters.Buddha
I put this link posted on YouTube, a concert at Harvard Square which would have been packed had it not been restricted to only take place during the day. Apparently relegated to daytime event rather than the usual evening concert due to fears that his concert would bring down the house. His concerts would NORMALLY be FULL PACKED and would have brought down the house – Just like what’s happening now – The convention would normally be packed but not this time. STILL, still the message … can virtually bring down the house.
