We Shall Overcome, Someday

N., one of the most naturally-gifted witches that I know, and, lucky me, a founding mother of my circle of magical women, led us last night, on the September 11th dark moon, in a magical working mere blocks from the Capitol. All over the city, as if just to piss me off, flags were flying at half mast. Everywhere, that is, except for the school across the street from our magical working, where Betsy Ross' flag and the flag of the District of Columbia flew high, and strong, and proud.

N. used this song, one which I'd have thought was too over-used to affect me. But by the time that Bruce got to the verse that says: "We are not afraid, we are not afraid . . . ." I was sobbing like a baby and shedding magic into the Earth like a big-old-magic-shedding thing.

Come to DC this weekend. The witches have been making it ready to hear that the people want an end to this war.

Thank you.
I was wondering on Sunday if you would.

I wish I could, the family coffers are depleted with family emergencies and travel is not an option. But I will walk the Labyrinth here and be with you all in spirit.

Thanks for sending energy to us. We can use it!

I got to hear Bruce Springsteen perform this live in 6/06 and cried my eyes out.

I will not be able to get to DC but I will be with you in spirit
