We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to pay tribute to our Austronesian Ancestors...islands and cultures of the Pacific coning together to honor and remember those that came before.
Tribute to Pokemon
This poem is in honor of V-Day and One Billion Rising 2017. It is titled "The women of the world are crying" by Aurora Ferrer. 10 women of different ages, ethnic backgrounds and professions, some having never met before this day, standing in solidarity as one voice and one heart. No word was taken for granted. Each one of us felt our sisters' pain, our sisters' despair, our sisters' sadness, our sisters' outrage and our sisters' conviction to end the violence, the suffering, the oppression and the exploitation of women, girls and Mother Earth.
This was not an easy read but it gave us the opportunity to speak painful truths and to raise our voices as one..."The women of the world are crying, No More! No More! No More!
