Our author, Marshata Caradine-Randall, was one of the keynote speakers at Women's March. It was exhilarating and life changing for her. Here's the piece inspired by the event.
When a baby is born, their tiny eyes are laid upon the voice they have heard for the time they were in the womb
Women spoke in various dialects but the same language
Women were ill but yet managed to get out of their wheelchairs and step for progress, unity, justice, and show an outward declaration that they roll, sit, and march on the side of love
Women voices came in different forms, on different levels, executing different things but with one collective goal in mind: life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the ability to love
Women, took their rightful places
Women tore up the script
Women lead a movement
Woment created a moment in herstory
Women changed their narratives
Now, if this outward show of solidarity will really show us the power we have within us on a unified front, we can really change the world!
