bodhisattvas bring hope πŸ™πŸ»

sharing some more of the incredible and needed social justice art of Rick Frausto πŸ™πŸ»

yesterday, January 6th, we saw democracy attacked by a mob of insurrectionists provoked by a sitting albeit outgoing President and an enabling GOP. however, we also saw democracy work and win with Congressional certification of Pres-elect Joe Biden’s and Vice Pres-elect Kamala Harris’ 306 Electoral College votes. we also saw democracy work and win on November 3rd and again impressively again on January 5th. this doesn’t just happen, it happens through an engaged citizenry, good-strong candidates like Rev. Raphael Warnok and Jon Osoff, and incredibly hard beneficial work from bodhisattvas like Stacey Abrams. let’s not lose sight of how absolutely amazing the success of Georgia is. Stacey Abrams is a hero with a view of the long arc, good-heartedness, and strategic mind needed for beneficial transformation of our political landscape. Rev. Warnok was John Lewis’ minister and Jon Osoff was John Lewis’ intern. it doesn’t escape me that a bodhisattva saint like John Lewis may have been working from beyond to assist. at the very least, his spirit lives in these fine people.

as hard and treacherous as the path ahead may be, as difficult and challenging as the work ahead of us may be to transform and heal this country into the country we have said it is, have hoped it would be, and should be, having good people like these as leaders and all the grassroots organizers and workers on the ground, brings hope πŸŒβ€οΈπŸ™πŸ»
