We dream a marvelous dream. We show up on bridges across the world and we bridge our minds to our hearts. We show up and we bridge a million hearts.
We dream a marvelous dream. We show up and we ignite a new kind of power. One that has been perceived as weak, but that is proving to be more powerful than anything we’ve ever known.
We dream a marvelous dream. Except that we know it’s not a dream. Our souls are wide awake!
On March 8, 2012 as thousands carried signs of peace to the tops of bridges as part of Women for Women International's Join me on the Bridge campaign, we also carried a new awareness into the world.
Imagine the world if young girls grow up with a sense of meaning and a knowing that the gifts they have to offer are worthy. With an inner and outer freedom to imagine and create new ways.
Imagine young boys growing into men with their feminine capacities un-compromised. They will be able to hold a holistic view of life; they will begin to use their minds in service to their hearts.
These are the children who hold the blueprint for our future societies.
It is not a dream- these children are telling the story of our potentiality.
Take action! This post was submitted in response to International Women's Day 2012.
