See Lucy McBath of Mothers of the Movement at #BlogHer16
Were you watching the Democratic National Convention last night?
I was. And while history was indeed made (and I may have been chopping onions at the time, I admit), I think it's uncontroversial to say that the most powerful moment came when the Mothers of the Movement took the stage to talk about their unasked-for initiation into that movement: the loss of a child to gun violence.
She showed us a small window into how she has steeled herself to turn loss into leadership when she said:
"You don’t stop being a mom when your child dies, you don’t stop being a parent. I still wake up every day thinking about how to parent him, how to protect him, how to ensure his death doesn’t overshadow his life.”
As part of our Saturday lunchtime general session, Jory and Lucy will talk about the intersection of gun violence and race, that drive to be a leader in the wake of unspeakable loss, and what Lucy's call to action is to our attendees ... how we can all make a difference.
I hope you will join us to soak up her strength and wisdom.
