"We hold these truths to be self-evident..."
There's been a whole lot going on concerning the founding of this nation by my forefathers.
I've always dealt with being "equal" in the sense of being a woman in what was a man's world. No independence there although there's been a lot of improvement. I was underpaid and marginalized for quite a lot of my early professional life. Age and experience has made me more forward and outspoken. Yet I still hear male voices raised in volume or pitch when trying to prove a point over mine as if this vocal dominance can prove right. It happens from the top down.
Since I have voting rights I will use them.
I admit I have confusion concerning the social movements of today. I see the wrongs but violence does not solve the problem, it creates another. I listen, empathize, understand and sometimes am confused as to where things can change where everyone will be...equal.
It can't happen in a day.
