I was so devastated yesterday by the result of the US election. When the announcement came, it was like the world has come to an end. What could have happened? I kept asking myself but getting no answers.

Today like my other sisters round the world, I have arise and told myself that it is not finished at all, the game has just started. Therefore let the new president of America and other world leaders listen and listen carefully that we still have our voices which is our mightiest weapon. There is no way they can stop the voice of a bell. Our voices will continue to ring. Though we are beaten but we are not broken.

My sisters in US and all other part of the world, this is not a time to be discouraged, dejected and withdrawn but a time to rise up, join our hands together, put our voices together so that it will continue to ring and ring and ring!! The world has not seen the end of us! ALUTA CONTINUA!!

Thank you so much for your support and strength Busayo! While it feels incredibly painful right now, and like we as American's have let down our sisters around the world, I know that those of us that care about justice and equality will fight even harder in the days to come. 

Dear Busayo,

I can't tell you how much it meant to me to open this post this morning, to read your stirring words and see a picture of such powerful women. Thank you for your amazing support and call to action. We rise together!

Love,

Lisa
