On sorrow and remembrance
Marianne, I am so glad you recalled those memories. Indeed, it's our turn to truly become the ancestors the next generations will honor. You are setting an exemplary example! Carry on brave one. Joan
Thank you Marianne. A sobering and refreshing reminder.
These principles of Love, Wisdom,Compassion and Justice advocated by Robert Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King are the very ones you stand for Marianne, carrying on their work.
America and the world need you now more than ever, wishing (and praying) for your success in the forthcoming Presidential Election from Australia.
"How Long Will They Kill Our Prophets While We Stand Aside & Look...?"
Ms. Wiliamson, thank you for sharing this memory. The events of the 1960s seemed like ancient history when I was growing up in the 1980s and '90s, but in many ways we have come full circle. I'm glad we have the wisdom of people like you who feel, think, and want to share their experiences of those tumultuous times.
200,000 dead Ukrainians.
Marianne, do you want to know what the single toughest thing about figuring out time and space is? About finally making progress by leaps and bounds? The one thing that would heal every broken heart and vanquish every emotional pain? That would clear the way for infinite abundance, perfect health, and unlimited happiness?
Not relying on appearances.
Just stop it.
You so can,
I too remember that day well, as well as the day Bobby Kennedy was killed. I was 14 years old then, and those years - the turbulent ‘60’s and ‘70’s - were the years of my political awakening. On watching RFK announce Dr. King’s death and eulogize his life, knowing that the same fate awaited Bobby, just brings me to tears - at all that we lost then. Also, hearing a candidate for President of the United States talk about our society’s need for love over hate, for unity over division, as Bobby did that night, brings me to tears as well. Marianne, you echo RFK and MLK’s message in your own campaign in these times when we so desperately need to hear it. I can’t say it any better than Joan Halgren just did: “Carry on, brave one!” We need you. 💕🙏💕
Thank you. <3
Well said. We lost a Hero that day! My wake up moment came when JFK was assassinated. I was 11 years old and home sick from school. I awoke to the sound of my Mother’s scream! I ran to the kitchen and saw her on her knees sobbing. I had never seen her cry before that day. I ran to her and hugged her, and she hugged me. I was crying with her by then and I didn’t even know why! I asked what was wrong and she told me that our President had been shot! I never forgot it! I changed me. I lost my innocence that day. ✌️❤️
Spot on. ✊
I was a student at Dr King's alma mater when he was murdered, the rage and sorrow were powerful plus the dismay at the knowledge that hatred meant death, violence and the destruction of the voices of justice and non violence was something all our love and admiration could not undo. Yet here we are, more cynical but once more committed to love, light and change. Thank you Marianne
Oh! Yes, we must remember and dedicate our lives to all who left this world through hate!
Every year on 4/4 I listen to the Mountaintop Speech. It's prophetic in so many ways. I encourage you to do the same.
