womensmarch

She knew that others marched to make a statement, to make their voices heard, to show the powers that be that they would band together to defend their rights and beliefs. For some it was a Woman’s March, for others a Solidarity March, or even just a stand against autocracy.

But her goals were not that lofty.

Her fight was fore mostly against herself. She marched to free herself of the shackles of perceptions that her conservative upbringing had placed upon her. She marched to break down the walls of fear that she had built around her own heart.

She marched to free herself so that she could finally be free to march with her nation.

  1. I would say her goal was even loftier — her change is the change within, and that’s where the real change begins. When she sees that change within, she will be able to march with her nation. Fabulous perspective on the prompt — Thank you for joining us this week 🙂
