A story worth telling (Day 346)


This woman is reading 
aloud 
to her children,
after working a 10-hour day.
This woman is a warrior.
She is on a mission of
wisdom, knowing deep in her 
battered and dazzling soul,
that there’s no better way 
to teach them 
about the world, about
how to stand up and
how speak out, 
how to engage 
how to help and
how to fight for 
what they know 
is right, and 
how to know 
what is right. 
“Imagine,” she says to them, 
without saying the words.
“Imagine how all of our 
voices coming together 
could lift us up, and 
break us out. Now 
that will be a story
worth telling.”
