Danny Glover made the speech of a lifetime — the speech of our lifetime — at Occupy Oakland on October 15th. Listening to the speech has sent Duchess Susanna into a fit of hopeful tears, such as one experiences during the happy ending of a momentous film.
The entire video, and all of Danny Glover’s words, are worth experiencing and absorbing. Please watch it! Below, The Duchess has inscribed in text some of the quotes that she was able to capture and type out this morning.
Duchess Susanna writes: This morning, on Twitter, the phrase “Rise & Grind” was trending. It inspired me to reflect on the importance of doing work you feel good about (right livelihood). And, also, the fact that our work does not define our whole selves.
