The elections that took place this week in Virginia provided interesting insight into the willingness of people to step up and fight against an administration that is incredibly destructive and bullish in its supremely profit driven efforts. Though i am critical of even democrats, the limiting 2-party system and broader systemic forces that perpetuate exploitation of people and nature, it was refreshing to see every day people step up and run for local and state office...people with real problems, who deal (have dealt) with various kinds of loss and hardship, but who also hold hope for the future and see themselves and what they do now as critical to that future. They saw themselves as part of necessary solutions.
This is my reflection for today: What am i doing now that is part of the solution for the future?
