Do I need to remember painful memories of the long ago past? Some things will never, not ever again, be forgotten. Admittedly there are times when I feel like giving up. It happens almost every day, even if only for a moment, and then I keep going. Sip coffee, read stories or a walk in the outside air . These little distractions are necessary in daily life.
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.”
Wow! This is an amazing quote from an exceptional activist and author. Perhaps I’m inspired enough to continue writing on my blog on the subject of gender equality.
