Manumission Isn't Only For Man: Feminism Friday

There is a saying that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I would amend that and say sometimes it begins with a giant leap. I had a powerful conversation with a fellow writer a couple weekends ago. She stated it so eloquently, stop starting from the place of sacrafice when you don't have to. Open yourself up to oppurtunity.

I have a rebellious spirit,my family's legacy of freedom in Louisiana predates the Emmancipation Proclamation. My heart and soul derives from them. I owe it to all the blood spilled, so that I might live,to offer the best of myself to the world. I decided a couple days ago,instead of being in service to men or The Man, I will do my part for mankind.

Its time for us to reclaim our minds, heart and most basically, our human dignity.

It is our birthright.

be Brave,
