After another sleepless night which I spend mostly catching up on the emails I didn’t get around to last weekend, I finally drag myself to the cross trainer with my laptop tucked under the arm. It stands downstairs so the chill is unmistakable. The cold temperatures certainly awakes me, so much that instead of putting on a playlist and leaf through my social media accounts, I go straight to the Guardian and click on the article promising news on last night’s Golden Globe. it opens up with a speech from Oprah and what a speech at that. It certainly sits up there with Obama, JFK and Martin Luther King. I must have watched it at least 3 times over as it lasted my entire 35 minute workout.
So, I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue.
The truth couldn’t echo more loud and clear.
Please watch the speech in its full entirety. I just wonder (and hope), when will we see #oprahforpresident?
