This morning my husband jumped on me in bed excited like a little child christmas. I’ve been up till 2 or 3 am all week trying to fit in all the thing I need to do to support this revolution. I am honored to have been the one to hear the calling to help organize us as parents for the cause, but, this mama is tired!
Well I was up till 3 again last night balancing my actual work with sending out press releases to any outlet I could find about Bloomberg pushing the kids out of the park. So you could imagine my shock as Mark jumped on me almost waking G up in the process. But, it was worth the shock! Bloomberg and the city have BACKED DOWN! As of this morning the city has agreed to not enforce the “clean up”.
Our story aired last night on around 8pm on NY1. This was only a HOUR after I got off the phone with them to tell them of our changes. It has resulted in massive traffic to our organization’s website and spread of information.
It’s so many actions that have helped stop this evacuation from happening, from the petition a bunch of you signed, to the calls to 311 we all made last night, to the bad bad press I made sure Bloomberg was getting all through the night as I shed light on what the real motive behind chasing everyone out was.
Of all the posts I’ve been putting out on this on here I hope people will read this one above all others because it’s proof, we are being heard, we CAN make change. The world may not know what to do with us just yet, but this is just the beginning.
This should act as an inspiration to all of you who have doubted this movement so far, to all of you who have been too timid to join in. The proof is in the numbers, we are the 99% and WE as a country need each and everyone of you to stand up and speak out like we did last night.
What I’ve been doing all week and last night is not hard, I’m not special, I don’t have anymore skills than anyone reading this blog. You have the power to get involved, speak up for your rights and your families, and even more so now you have even more of a reason to feel like you can make a change, because we did.
Now what does YOUR family stand up for? Please tell me, I would love to hear.
