We must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.”   —   Audre Lord(e)

(Wow!  Our third Audre Lorde Crytoquote in the last two months!  This could get me to post two relevant songs, but I had my heart set on two other – birthday – songs.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Audre Lorde — Design & Illustration

It is not our differences that divide us.  It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”   —   Audre Lord(e)

(Wise, wise words, from a woman who Wikipedia writes:  a self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” who dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, and homophobia.  Not exactly Donald Trump’s kind of woman! 

I get the feeling that the Donald has never “dated” a Black, Hispanic, Asian or Native American woman in his life.  The only times he’s even posed for a photo with one was when he was presiding over some beauty pageant.  To think that this election is as close at it is is extremely depressing.   I only hope that the majority of his supporters have simply been taken in by his irrational fear tactics.  The thought of that many people – my fellow countrymen – actually embracing his outlook on things is frightening to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Audre Lorde: poems, essays, and short stories | Poeticous

Nothing I accept about myself can be used against me to diminish me.”   —   Audre Lorde

(In an exceedingly judgmental society this is an important attitude for self-preservation.  If they ever do a biography of Audre, I think that Nancy Giles could play her.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”   —   Audre Lorde

(I know this is supposed to be an empowering kind of quote, but it also applies to serial killers and genocidal maniacs.  Too many visions are very scary.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
