its not enough

#blackouttuesday but what now?  Its not enough to just say we need change, each and every one of us has a role to play and an action to take.  Yes, sign petitions, yes march and protest, donate to the funds, and support.  But ultimately, we must school ourselves and educate each other.  This change needs to come from a place of knowledge, understanding and recognising that we are all in this, one way or another.  Them awkward conversations need to happen until they are no longer awkward but are woven into our parenting, the intertextuality of our cultures, our national curriculum, the medical service, government policy.  Like waves in the ocean, we are at the same time, individual, and part of something tremendous.
