A PERSONAL STATEMENT ON GRATITUDE TO DONALD TRUMP
Who remembers that very poignant last question asked in the debate on Sunday night? "Can either of the candidates find a quality that you respect in each other?"
Well here's my sincere, and not one bit sarcastic, quality that I am grateful for (can't get all the way to respect) in Donald Trump, having nothing and EVERYTHING to do with politics.
THANK YOU SIR, FOR BEING SO VERBAL AND EXPRESSIVE WITH YOUR BIG NASTY MOUTH, SO AS TO GIVE THE WOMEN OF THIS COUNTRY (and around the world) THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS, DEBATE, ARGUE, VENT AND COME CLEAN WITH THE BULLSHIT THAT IS ACCEPTED AS "LOCKER ROOM TALK" AND IN THE PAST, BEEN AUTOMATICALLY ACCEPTED AS NORMAL.
You have single-handedly given us the greatest gift we could have possibly ever received in the form of a COLLECTIVE VOICE. If ever there was a time to find GRATITUDE and beauty in something so utterly despicable, let my voice be the one to shout it the loudest.... #BEAUTYHERE
And to the girls and women who have experienced this kind of hurt and to the men that have loved us and respected us and have helped to healed wounds like these in us, let us now see this as the offering that it is and continue this incredible dialogue so that we can raise daughters AND SONS who will not continue to stand for this kind of disrespectful mockery as a normal way of behavior.
I am thankful to be alive at such a time as this and be able to speak up in this very delicate and important conversation. I may only influence a small little circle of girls and women, but I will proudly stand up and speak about this in a way that helps to shift the perspective and makes us take a look at what can really be accomplished by what is happening. THIS IS NOT HAPPENING TO US...it's happening FOR us. It is crumbling HUGE AND SCARY walls of silence. Let's use social media for adding to the beauty and realize that this conversation goes waaayyy beyond politics and enters us into a new way of thinking, acting and loving. The future is big and bright and full of beautiful women who are changing the world, one story at a time. Focus on THAT.
In sincere gratitude,
