Souss-Maldonado Newsletter 2017

Dear family and friends:

I don’t know about you but I’m so happy 2017 is over.   What a discordant year this has been.  One of the most dismals I have ever lived, so much hate, prejudice, harassment.  Yet, I have tons of hope and I believe in justice, in karma, and pray that 2018 is a better year.   Alfred Lord Tennyson could not have said it best, “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.”

We started the year with justice in mind.  L.I.F.E. sent three representatives to Washington, DC on January 21st, Vicky, Maria Teresa and I, to the First Women’s March, one of the biggest in history and for sure a bigger crowd that the inauguration day crowd, we were there on both days.  What a great time to share with other women and men, and at the same time convey a clear message that all women’s rights are human rights, that we’re all equal regardless of race, religious beliefs and sexual orientation, that no human is illegal and that we must protect the climate and the environment for future generations.  It was a great weekend of sharing and bonding, an unforgettable one.
