I believe in humanity. I am a Feminist. I believe that we should help and take care of one another as a family, as a community, and as a country. A woman’s body is hers just like a man’s body is his. A child should never know hunger, neglect, abuse, or be denied education. Likewise, our elders should be given the respect they’ve earned while the generations below should be actively looking towards the future.
I am liberal in political views. I am extremely vocal against sexual assault and domestic violence. I am a Unitarian Universalist. I will probably piss you off at some point and that’s okay because you’ll probably do the same to me. As long as you are respectful I will be as well.
I like your description especially ‘our elders should be given the respect they’ve earned’. In many countries generations live under the same roof. In the USA, assisted living and nursing homes are the norm. ‘while the generations below should be actively looking towards the future’ AND watching over those who gave them life.
Mare, my friend, I really like your website here. It’s a delight.
Joel F reblogged you and I’m so glad he did. You are exceptionally talented. Your writing is exquisitely deep and beautiful.
Thank you. Joel’s work is one of my favorites for the same reason.
So loving your perspective. I miss it in my follow feed sometimes therefore need the email.
