On Saturday, December 3, we stood for the third week. Here is an excerpt from Building Ordinary: What would happen if The Great Silent Grandmother Gathering Came True?
On Saturday, Sharon and I stood for peace outside City Hall, our third week.
Under the blue, blue San Francisco sky, we two stood in silence, each in our thoughts, glancing to smile at one another now and then.
One thought flared again and again: What would happen if our numbers grew? If we became four? If four became eight, and eight sixteen? What would happen if Sharon Mehdi’s story, The Great Silent Grandmother Gathering: A Story for Anyone Who Thinks She Can’t Save the World, came true?
