A Response to The Little Book of Race and Restorative Justice, by Fania E. Davis

Dear Ms. Davis,

Our book circle has read your book, small but packed with so much power. We completed this read before the break of change

For US, Woman, WOMBman, the gods of life, the portals to humanity.

We are tired but we keep fighting.

We are enraged but in this spiritual warfare, we find peace.

In many ways, we, US, Woman, Soldiers and yet Survivors.

They are turning US, Woman, FEmales, against one another.

Those times from the past, seem to become present here in the future.

For US, Woman, HEALers we can still guide our communities, nurture our families, and do all things in peace.

Not only POC but all, but accepting the reality that not all wants the treasures we sow and harvest.

We, Woman, EDUCAT(E)ors, are more than they can obtain, restrain, or strip.

Our story is just beginning.


Maybe this can be an ode to an addition to your book!
