Marianna invited me to the Osborne Breakfast to hear Stacey Abrams . 650 people met in the Grand Hyatt at 7:30 am. There was a waiting list.
Yesterday morning strong and clear with a real smile
and real teeth Stacey Abrams stood, early, full of the energy of early,
speaking for people and prisons knowing how wrong the system is
how much we have to change, and there she was telling the story
of her siblings, they grew up PBS poor she said, poor but we watched
public television they’re a judge a scientist a politician now
educated every one of them. My brother went to jail she said.
My brother keeps going to jail. We love him she said but
our family alone is not enough. We always need all of us said Stacey Abrams
if any change is going to happen. We always need all of us
she repeated. We knew how right she was.
