MLK Jr Day | 1.18.21

MLK Jr Day | 1.18.21

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice. — Martin Luther King Jr

It’s MLK Jr Day so why does it still feel like for every step we take forward, there are dozens of steps back. And if I in my white privilege feel this, how much worse do Black and Brown American’s feel it? It weighs heavily on my heart but despite it, I press forward for justice.

I hope that the Biden Administration has a plan to change these numbers drastically.

When Justice Sotomayor say’s their names:

When the threat comes from within.

Clint Smith is a voice we all need to pay attention to!

And finally on Wednesday Amanda Gorman will read her poetry at Biden’s inauguration.

In This Place (An American Lyric) by Amanda Gorman

See you all back here on Wednesday!

A Stand-Up Monday

A Stand-Up Monday

“There comes a moment you have to decide: Do you keep quiet or do you stand up.” – Malala Yousafzai

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“We must not be silent. We all must act.” – John Lewis

A fitting start for a Monday.

P.S. Anna Maltz has tweaked Kat Coyle’s PussyHat and it is really spectacular! You still have time to knit one or two Kettunøsin – it is the perfect project to practice your colorwork!
