Marianne for Congress - My Campaign, In My Own Words (by Marianne Williamson)

A mother reached out to me to share her story. If you are moved please share, she wrote:

"1 in 20 children is diagnosed with epilepsy. 1 in 68 is diagnosed with autism. Pediatric cancers have been rising since the 70s. Mothers and fathers have been successfully treating a wide range of disorders with pediatric cannabis. It needs to be an available alternative treatment on the table. For more information please visit the Realm of Caring Foundation"

This is her story:
“My 4 1/2 year old son has treatment resistant epilepsy. He was diagnosed just last year and it has been a nightmare. We were lucky enough to be one of the first 20 patients the Realm of Caring has been able to provide high CBD tinctures to in California. To our HUGE relief, it has worked like magic. My son, who can average between 15 and 75 seizures a day, has been seizure free now for 8 WEEKS. 

"I pass this story along to you in hopes of raising cultural consciousness and further awareness to the FACT that there are gentle, powerful alternatives to pharmaceutical medications out there that work miracles. We don’t need to be afraid.

"But parents on this path are fighting a war. My son is now exiled in California and his medication is rare as diamonds. We need increased access to high quality medications NOW and we need to stop being messed with. The news in Los Angeles covered our story last night. Our recently opened dispensary was shut down in just 9 days.

There is a proposal to DE-LIST Grey Wolves across the entire contiguous United States. What does this mean????? To DE-list means to be removed from the protection of the Endangered Species Act, to be taken off of that list. Wolves have been under this protection for almost 40 years now, recovering from mass genocide at the hands of humans. It has been illegal to hunt them….until now. (via http://www.wildomen.com/earthkeepers/)
When wolves were “De-Listed” in Montana this year, a person was able to purchase one of 6,000 $19 DOLLAR permits which would then allow him to kill up to 5 wolves in a state where there is a population of 625. This is a REAL example of something that actually happened, THIS YEAR, in Montana. Similar things happened in the other states that have de-listed the wolf.  Hunters in Michigan snapped up 1000 permits within the first 30 minutes of them going on sale.

US Thanksgiving truth and prayers~ | MYSTICMAMMA.COM 
We can’t keep perpetuating the old myths, so let’s instead honor the truth, reclaim it and transform it with the light of understanding… 
As we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US we are reminded like Terra Trevorsaid on the Huffington Post:

“the ‘Thanksgiving’ holiday was coined and continues to be celebrated based on a story that does not include factual Native American history.. It serves as a period of remembering how a gift of generosity was rewarded by theft of land and seed corn, extermination of many Native people from disease, and near total elimination of many more from forced assimilation. As celebrated in America ‘Thanksgiving’ is a reminder of 500 years of betrayal.”

She continues:

“I’m within the assemblage of American Indians whose family and Native friends celebrates Thanksgiving. But our focus is not on pilgrims. We don’t turn their lives topsy-turvy by making lengthy lists of things needing to be done for what has come to be known as Turkey Day. We aren’t in the throng of those who go commercial in the planning and then grumble about the fanfare involved. Our celebration is deep-rooted in the simple tradition of honoring, remembering our ancestors, our history, with a focus on celebrating the harvest. We feast and pray for the healing to begin…”

But the truth is getting out anyway. The fact that the business-as-usual pursuit of profits and growth is destabilising life on earth is no longer something we need to read about in scientific journals. The early signs are unfolding before our eyes. And increasing numbers of us are responding accordingly: blockading fracking activity in Balcombe; interfering with Arctic drilling preparations in Russian waters (at tremendous personal cost); taking tar sands operators to court for violating indigenous sovereignty; and countless other acts of resistance large and small. In Brad Werner’s computer model, this is the “friction” needed to slow down the forces of destabilisation; the great climate campaigner Bill McKibben calls it the “antibodies” rising up to fight the planet’s “spiking fever”.
