After three years at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, I finally understand it as a moral imperative–women’s voices must lead.
When Hillary Clinton addressed the assembly of women from around the world, I saw in her the opportunity for women’s issues to take center stage.
When I returned home to Vermont, however, I began to hear more and more about Bernie.
At first it seemed wishful thinking, then a rumor, but finally there was to be an official announcement.
I went to see for myself.
There, in Burlington, on the waterfront–which he set aside for the people when he was Mayor there–I saw what I hoped I wouldn’t see…
Her welcoming and demanding presence in a balding, shouting white man.
It’s just like Her to be so surprising.
Later, when Senator Sanders addressed Liberty University, a private, non-profit Christian academic community founded by Jerry Falwell, I was certain.
He is She.
Even more tickling was the introduction provided by Jerry Falwell, Jr.
Christ affirming His presence in Bernie’s voice too.
