The Northern California winter storms devastated our home, which is currently uninhabitable. We’re unable to live in the house due to wet and damp conditions. Insurance declined coverage. Our county isn’t included in the Federal disaster declaration. Looking for assistance is a full time job in itself, and we’ve been following referrals with no joy.

Over the next month, I’ll be overhauling this we

“Only you can tell your story.”
Victoria A. Hudson

“Make a difference. Leave a legacy.”
Victoria A. Hudson

“The hard right over the easy wrong. Your call.”
Victoria A. Hudson

“Failure is Impossible”
Susan B. Anthony

“Many social justice or social activist movements have been rooted in a position. A position is usually against something. Any position will call up its opposition. If I say up, it generates down. If I say right, it really creates left. If I say good, it creates bad. So a position creates its opposition. A stand is something quite distinct from that.

There are synonyms for “stand” such as “declaration” or “commitment,” but let me talk for just a few moments about the power of a stand. A stand comes from the heart, from the soul. A stand is always life affirming. A stand is always trustworthy. A stand is natural to who you are. When we use the phrase “take a stand” I’m really inviting you to un-cover, or “unconceal,” or recognize, or affirm, or claim the stand that you already are.

Stand-takers are the people who actually change the course of history and are the source of causing an idea’s time to come. Mahatma Gandhi was a stand-taker. He took a stand so powerful that it mobilized millions of people in a way that the completely unpredictable outcome of the British walking out of India did happen. And India became an independent nation. The stand that he took… or the stand that Martin Luther King, Jr. took or the stand that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony took for women’s rights—those stands changed our lives today. The changes that have taken place in history as a result of the stand-takers are permanent changes, not temporary changes. The women in this room vote because those women took so powerful a stand that it moved the world.

And so the opportunity here is for us to claim the stand that we already are, not take a position against the macro economic system, or a position against this administration, although some of you may have those feelings. What’s way more powerful than that is taking a stand, which includes all positions, which allows all positions to be heard and reconsidered, and to begin to dissolve.

When you take a stand, it actually does shift the whole universe and unexpected, unpredictable things happen.”
Lynne Twist

“Resistance to tyranny ius obedience to God”
