Sisters unite!

Come with me, my sister
put your hand in mine
share your joys
share your sorrows
’til tears and laughter
coat our cheeks.

Come with me, my sisters
together we are strong
unite in hope
unite in courage
join hands together
across the world.

  1. ‘Hands Across America was a public fundraising event on Sunday, May 25, 1986, when 5 million to 6.5 million people held hands for 15 minutes in an ostensible attempt to form a continuous human chain across the contiguous United States. Many participants donated $10 each to reserve their place in line.’

    Much like your message of unity for ‘sisters’… might be time to try a ‘Hands Across the World’… OK the oceans might get in the way… but it is still worth trying 😉

    • That’s a great idea, Jules. We had a few ‘stand together’ community initiatives across Cape Town (pre-Covid) which were well supported. I also remember the ‘Reclaim the Night’ marches from my student days.
