Fly Your Flag! Walk the Walk! Talk the Talk!

My sister-in-law, Dawn Slegona McDonald,  is marching on Monday- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Her cause:  Gun Control.  Her rally: One Million Moms for Gun Control. Why: Sandy Hook.555345_10151435090628973_979241019_n

On August 28, 1963, Dr. King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered a 17 minute speech called “I Have a Dream“. His cause: End Racism. His rally:  March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Why: Civil Rights for all.

I, too, have a cause. I strongly believe in the rights and equality of women.  My rally is bringing the message of empowerment through theater. I love theater and for me, it’s the right medium to carry the message. Hence my production of Mum’s (not) the Word in 2010, my work with the EstroGenius Festival and in next month’s  V-Day Hell’s Kitchen “The Vagina Monologues” 2013.

You also have a cause. What burns your *ss? What makes you say, “No More”. What are you going to do?

Fly your flag!
