    This is beautiful. I love this part…
    “And in this house?….standing is victory. Bearing your own weight, standing tall on your own two feet, preparing to move under your own power. Independence is celebrated while dependence is necessary.”
    I do hope that my girls grow up to become their own advocates, and I hope that people take the time to listen to them, value what they have to say, and realize they have much to contribute in this broken world.

  3. Thank you for reminding us that injustice comes in many forms. I value you so much.

    So thought provoking. I’m struck by what a loving, thoughtful, and committed family you have. Real social justice roots. I also love the “crazy mix of power and dependence.” Caring about and for one another is the foundation of everything. Thank you for making MLK’s vision even more relevant and powerful. Thank you for sharing your own story and Aidan’s. Love, Maureen
