Back in the 70s I was expanding my awareness of the world faster than I could grasp everything. The 1st in my family to go to college, the 1st time I protested publicly abt injustices, and more… I stopped buying grapes and lettuce, joined protest groups on campus at UCLA and at other locations off campus. I couldn’t believe that what I ate cost so much to the people who did the work to bring it to us. As a little girl, I naively thought that the future would bring more education, enlightenment and a desire for equality, justice, and abundance to all. It never crossed my mind that there would be people who could never be satisfied with millions, let alone billions, which I couldn’t fathom. I see hope from movements that try to show what really goes on behind the facade of the corporations. I get energy from the likes of Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, so many others who sacrificed so much… May the light of our Source bring awareness so that we may truly enjoy our oneness in this world.
