Moms Have An Indomitable Will

Strength does not come from physical capacity.

It comes from an indomitable will.

Mahatma Gandhi

It has taken time to come back from the shock, and yet again...

My body is still feeling the heaviness

The pain. The grief. The anger.

I felt it in my throat as I froze in disbelief.

I felt in my womb the excruciating pain of the #Uvalde moms and dads and every senseless tragedy before them.

And the ones that will come after.

Because the truth is this country loves its guns more than the safety of our children and every soul that has died of gun violence.

Two days after the carnage, all the emotions rushed in at once.

I felt them all. My body trembling, filled with a rage I hadn't felt before as

I tried to hold it in.

But one afternoon, while in the tent seeking peace and answers to:

"What can I do?"

I allowed a primal cry to be released from the deepest part of my soul.

Just like labor pains. I remembered.

Breathe and then push as I cried.

Perhaps your body is feeling it too and doesn't know what it is or how to release

Allow it to pass through you. Please don't hold it in. Embrace it, and then...

Breathe—woman. Breathe.

We can do this together.

We've become the voice—the mothers who want to leave our children a country of hope, love, acceptance, and peace.

Because after we wipe our tears, we, the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters, can unite and be an energy force of change.

We are the warriors.

The protectors.

The earthkeepers

The creators.

The voice that shouts when others can't

Let this be the last generation to live through this carnage.

This time feels...different.

We've had enough. And after we grieve, we can use the energy to be a catalyst that will sprint us into a movement to be reckoned with.

Let this be the last generation to live through these senseless times.

Let's give our children the world peace they so much deserve.

After we have experienced a period of contraction, it is time to expand and use our indomitable will to move humanity forward!

If you feel you would like to chat with someone let's connect!

If you would like to be part of the change I invite you to consider supporting @MOMSDEMANDCHANGE and @EVERYTOWN
