Happy Mother’s Day!
Hello people of the light! I have had a most inspirational experience in Portland and Eugene with Hillary supporters this weekend. In fact, as I recall a preacher talking about the feast of the Pentecost on my radio wake up call this morning, and it was a fine message, it didn’t hold a candle to Dr. Alice Palmer delivering her message about the greatness of Hillary’s struggle and achievements, hand in hand with her own, and all of ours’, at a school in Eugene.
Mother’s day has special significance for me this year, because of my committment to the most courageous mother in America, Hillary Clinton, and because I finally get that when mother’s can take care of their children and themselves, when they have the opportunities to be and become themselves and balance what they need to do in the world with what they need to do at home, they are the foundations of great communities and a strong, independent country.
Watch Chelsea’s mother day card about her mother, it made me cry. To think that Hillary Rodham was able to raise a child so deftly, so brilliantly, and the proof is in the pudding, while working tirelessly on behalf of families and getting lasting results, and arriving perhaps as the president of the United States, means that everything is possible. Only a woman could do this.
If you believe as I do that Hillary should be President not Vice president, that winners never quit and she should be encouraged to run to the convention and have every vote count, Florida included, she needs to hear from you. Howard Dean needs to hear from you. The people’s voice, not the pundits’, needs to be represented. Speaking yesterday were Ann Lewis, senior advisor to Hillary Clinton, Dr. Alice Palmer, former state Senator (IL) and teacher, Ellen Malcolm, president and founder of Emily’s list, The Honorable Betty Roberts, first woman Supreme Court Justice on the Oregon Supreme Court and Erica Alexander, Actress. I wish you could have heard them all, but check them out on your own and be lifted!
