Tina’s Project 2020
“I Have a Dream” is a public speech that was delivered by American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963, in which he called for civil and economic rights and an end to racism in the United States
I also have a dream about this project. I wanted to hear the voices of my Sisters. Their Voices speaking truth to power, her stories and dreams, and nightmares that she needs/must express.
Because I do know in expressing herself is healing especially in an environment where she feels unconditional acceptance and with other women that understand and have experienced the same things too…it is so Powerful and Healing. I want all my Sisters to find healing, and I know through Art and Voice and by unleashing the most sacred part of being a woman, we can create a pathway for ourselves to find peace and to be happy.
I truly believe to change the world, you first start with yourself, and that means taking care of yourself emotionally, physically and that you can find long days and nights of happiness. To break generational patterns of abuse it needs to start that way, and we create this beautiful change, for ourselves, family, friends and our Community.
I have a question: Where do STRONG women go when they are hurt and need someone to hold some space for them, so they can heal and talk about the pain in her life, in her days, months and years of crisis and trauma?….I would like to create a space that we as friends, family pull from the best of ourselves and that comes from the power of being a woman. Only women truly understand the fragile balance she constantly must maintain…Because these women are Strong, Intelligent, Resilient, and a little pissed off about some issues.
Lets create a Sisterhood that is safe…at all times…..every time. I know ya all can feel me when a sister is crying by herself in her bedroom, because life is overwhelming her and she is responsible for so many people in her family, and it is a burden that she carries on her own, and a rough path that she will have to navigate, but it is her choice to carry it, she would do anything for her children and family. But sometimes a Sister just needs a break, time to heal, lick our wounds so we can stand to fight another day….and that’s it.
True change…..generational change.
