By SUSAN DROMEY HEETER, Joyful Musings
Often it is brevity that sticks, that resonates, that captures the essence of a moment. I muse joyfully on moment’s from Friday night’s rally at Dover’s Henry Law Park where those gathered were asked to provide one word that captured their reaction, their why for coming out to discuss, to listen, to react to the overturning of Roe Vs. Wade.
Below are their responses.
Pete Bixby, 61: Fairness
Eleanor Bolker, 18: Fear
Jessica Bolker, 57: Scared
Kylie Venable, 31: Rage
Kendra Venable, 33: Disappointment
Jessica Toomey, 25: Pro-Choice
Abigail Henderson, 25: Human Rights
Alisa Eaton, 25: Freedom
Dameillia Russell, 24: Freedom
Diana Andersson, 75: Anger
Margot Erdmann, 47: Seething Rage
Greta Erdmann, 13: AbortionRights
Mandy Walters, 32: Rage
Colleen Reilly, 30: Solidarity
Elaine Thorpe, 65: Heartbroken
Lye Rutman, 39: Equality
I muse joyfully on your word around this stunning development. Do share, musers. Thank you.
