Messages of hope...

In light of the wave of hope washing over the nation, I've taken a moment to appreciate the sentiments of young people-- people who know that our work didn't stop on November 4th.

Today, at the Walters, we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr's birthday with a family festival encouraging the masses to come in out of the cold, to create, learn and share as a community. Among the projects, we invited kids to stand at the podium and address the group with messages of hope and the future, as Dr. King had done, then draw postcards with messages of THEIR dreams.

The preceding were amongst my favorites.
Let yourself be inspired and remember-- our work is not done. We have a new leader, not a magician. Take time to volunteer at a school; to clean up a local park; to sign petitions and spread the word; to be the change you wish to see.
Much love!
