solidarity & gratitude. (a reflection)

today I am grateful.
grateful to have shared this day with my family across 3 states
grateful for my parents, who raised us to stand up for justice
grateful to march with my 8 year old, a sign he created in one hand and his other hand clutching mine
grateful to all the men who love us and supported us today and every day
grateful that so many amazing families out there are raising their kids to stand up for what's right
grateful for the leadership emerging all around us
grateful for all those giving voice to those who's voices are in danger of being drowned out
grateful for our 60k+ oakland community who marched without one arrest
grateful for the global solidarity
my heart is full. my mind is clear. 
today was just the beginning of so much good work to come.
