2 Responses to Alice Walker’s letter to Barak Obama

  1. That is a lovely letter! So encouraging and packed with wisdom. I was thinking about how much pressure Obama must be feeling…It’s as though the entire country, not just African Americans, are resting their hope of change on him. What so many of us don’t realize is that the change has to take place within individuals and it ripples out from there.

    I completely agree, Kimberlee. Whatever Obama can achieve is only a small part of what can be done if we are pushing from below for the sort of society we really want – a turn away from the corporatist police state we’ve been becoming.
