Failure Is Impossible

Hey women, and everyone, LISTEN UP AND SHARE, a message from author Sonja Livingston & Susan B Anthony in Rochester, NY. Are you ready?

“I keep walking by Susan B.’s grave, as if her bones might bolster me–or maybe not so much her bones anymore as her dust–or maybe that too is a stretch. More like her spirit. Here I am on the day before the day, letting Miss Anthony’s indomitable spirit soak into my every cell. It’s a glorious morning. Even the trees are conspiring. Oaks and ashes have gone bronze and gold, the last of the maples are flaming. You were right, Miss Susan, failure is impossible.”  Sonja Livingston

  1. Oh how I wish women’s votes would have sufficed. If this election proves anything it is that we need to make college more affordable. I blame this shit storm on uneducated bravado, ignorance, racism and misogyny. Never been more scared in my life!

  2. Pingback: Failure Is Impossible | Act 3

  3. At the polls tomorrow, I will be thinking of my maternal grandmother, who died of Spanish Flu just before women got the right to vote.
