The time for creating, reclaiming and rewriting rituals by and for women is now. Women’s ritual is the “extreme” notion that women can create and lead ritual without a middleman. It is the “revolutionary” consideration that we do not need a priest, rabbi, pastor, imam or any other human being to be the conduit to the Divine. By standing up and claiming our space, women are reclaiming positions as our own clergy and certainly as Priestesses of the Goddess, ministers, and spiritual leaders in our families and communities.
Importantly, Women’s Ritual is women-centric. It has created a call for and an answer to women’s needs to be in Sacred Space with other women; to share their women experiences and stories; to confirm that they are not alone. Societal masks may be removed in women’s ritual and in groups of all women; there is no need to filter what is shared. “SisterCircles that practice Rituals is currently the most important model for symbolic and therefore, psychic and spiritual change in women. Certainly ritual is an idealized microcosmic experience, but it may be an endurably important means of invoking a new order of things in the macrocosm. At the very least, it has been a useful mode for envisioning what a different world for women might ‘feel’ like.” -Kay Turner
Women’s Spirituality is teaching us the reality of Re-membrance and Transformation. By acknowledging the divinity within ourselves – the Goddess – we acknowledge the inherent power that is within us. We no longer need to stumble alone in the dark in pain and anger and shame – we can reach out and take the hands of our Sisters and acknowledge the pain, anger and shame; name it; feel it; and release it. We borrow our Sister’s strength to transform and then are ready to lend ourselves to her transformation as well.
Imagine a world where women are equal and respected; a world where our children are safe. If we can Imagine it, we can Create it. ♡

This disturbing image taken at the exact moment of execution shows an armed National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL) soldier shooting an enemy Krahn fighter in the street, killing him almost instantly. Gbarnga, Liberia. May 8th 1996. The First Liberian Civil War had its origins when Samuel Doe with Krahn soldiers led a coup d'état that killed President William R. Tolbert Jr. and overthrew the elected government in 1980, which ended the Americo-Liberian rule over the country that had been there since Liberian independence from the United States in 1822. It was a country of freed slaves from the US and the Caribbean that was made with the support of America, and those free slaves and their decedents now had a country that was truly their own. The 133 year long Americo-Liberian political domination in Liberia ended in 1980, and many at the time hailed the coup as now Liberia was a country led by people of native African decent instead of the Americo-Liberian elite. However, Doe, who at the time of the coup was a Sergeant, promoted himself to full General and established a People's Redemption Council that was composed of himself and fourteen other low-ranking officers. They would rule the country now, and soon afterwards there was mass executions of members from the former Tolbert government. President Doe also suspended the Liberian constitution and allowed all defendants in the new military trials against former officials to only be tried with no legal representation whatsoever and no trial by jury, which basically ensured their convictions. President Doe and the PRC were inexperienced at running a nation, and even though he promised a return to civilian rule by 1985 he failed to do that when the year came. Liberia under Doe openly supported the United States in the Cold War against the Soviet Union, so as a result President Doe enjoyed much support from Washington and there was some accusations that the military coup in 1980 even happened with the support of the United States or the CIA, while others claimed the Americans simply turned a blind eye to the events that unfolded.

Sitting back and reading and looking at posts today, I realized a lot of the people I follow or who follow me are more uninformed than logic can explain. .
Firstly, liberals/leftists should stop complaining about every single problem with the conservative movement and Republican Party . Case and point as to why the Democratic Party is shook. Hating the other side doesn’t fuel success or progress , but instead stagnancy and idiocy. Republicans and conservatives are allowed to have their opinion and should be without being labeled racist, a bigot , or money hungry. .
Conservatives should learn to empathize and stop blaming every one of their problem on someone else. Muslims aren’t the problem, compare the amount of terrorist attacks in America by Muslims to by people born and raised here. ISIS is a problem not Islam , in the same way that the KKK is a problem not Christianity . And people are allowed to protest on the field if they wish , if you don’t like it then stand for the flag . And if you truly care about the meaning , then call out every form of disrespect (American flag bikini, flag plates, placemats, holding flag horizontally) not just one. And treat your veterans better! .
America right now is a cesspool of ignorance and sides that are too stupid and gullible to understand the other. If you took the time to understand another perspective, disagree or not, you’d learn more and be less ignorant of topics that you form your opinion from while watching biased ass FOX or CNN.
Understanding is knowledge and knowledge is power .
