This month, I visited the White House for the first time in a decade. I got there at 9am on a Friday, and there weren't many people there. I just stood there and stared at it. I love DC but there is so much GRAVITY in that town. Some of the world's most important work is done there, and a lot of work is being undone as well. I fell into a sort of meditative state, just staring. And thinking. And before I knew it, protesters were everywhere. Like, protesters from different groups, all yelling, all so passionate. But it was too much...I had to get away.
US politics is a mess - we all see it. But I'm still rooting for a lot of our elected PUBLIC SERVANTS. What our politics needs is more SERVANT LEADERSHIP - look it up. It's hard for me to imagine an effective leader who has no wish to truly SERVE its constituents. Which explains the void in leadership so many feel at our White House. But people like me hold out hope, because I feel the surge of servant leaders coming. I have hope that we will find our way back ✨
I didn't mean for this to be such a long post. It's just hard not to think of America on September 11th 🇺🇸 #neverforget #hope #september11th #911 #whitehouse #america
UPDATE: Yes, the flag was at half-staff for Senator Jon McCain. It's funny, it only rained once that day, and it was as his casket was brought into the Capitol Building. It was like sad poetry...at least, that's what I thought at the time....
