The Power of Music

We women have a lot of work ahead of us . . . 

but let us not forget that, whatever our chosen endeavor 
on the frontiers of change, 
music is a force that augments all of our efforts. 
Whether we are grassroots organizers, candidates for office, 
or participating in civil disobedience . . . 
when we connect with the power of song, 
we may discover a renewed sense of power 
residing deep within  ourselves. 
Music expands our vision and our reach. 
When we sing we no longer feel alone. 
I don't pretend to fully understand this blessed mysterious force . . . 
but I know it's real. And it belongs to everyone.
