Women’s March Day – Imagine . . .

John Lennon invited us to imagine the unimaginable, a good thing to do on January 21, 2017.

Imagine . . .  the new President and new First Lady hear the voices from the Women’s March today and take them seriously – as a voting bloc.

Imagine . . . candidate Trump meant what he said about universal health care.

Imagine . . . he surprises everyone by proposing Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All”, manages to get bi-partisan support and commendation from President Obama.

Imagine . . .  he changes his mind about climate change, decides to become the world leader in reducing carbon emissions, and proposes that a green economy be the theme of the nation’s infrastructure re-building program.

Imagine . . .  Michael Moore is correct that the new President is highly sensitive to criticism and changes his color for the sake of popular approval ratings.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” – Maya Angelou.

This day of the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and all across America, dare to imagine with Maya Angelou and John Lennon.

Imagine! Just for today.

About Gordon C. Stewart

I've always liked quiet. And, like most people, I've experienced the world's madness. "Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness" (Wipf and Stock Publishers, Jan. 2017) distills 47 years of experiencing stillness and madness as a campus minister and Presbyterian pastor (IL, WI, NY, OH, and MN), poverty criminal law firm executive director, and social commentator. Our dog Barclay reminds me to calm down and be much more still than I would be without him.

  1. I never knew I could have a fantasy life involving politics. I never was one of those people who said “it can’t happen here,” but I really didn’t think this could ever REALLY happen here. I thought we were better than this. Smarter than this.

    • Marilyn, yesterday I felt as low as I’ve ever felt. The Women’s March was a real shot of hope, but all the marchers have gone home and Trump is exercising power with a vengeance, still arguing that he would have won the popular vote if millions of illegal votes hadn’t been cast. This is as sick as it gets. Yesterday I felt despair greater than I did after 9/11. Not good. Not good.
