Finding Home

Justice.

I have a strong sense of justice. I physically react when I hear about the needs of the deaf community in Vermont not being met, or how big player capitalist greed in the fuel industry is ruining our environment, or how a child I know is being bullied in school. Unfortunately, my sense of justice doesn’t always initiate change, because I feel powerless, and there’s not enough of me to make a big splash. Going deeper into my feelings of justice means facing my inabilities, and what I put in my own way. Going deeper means reaching to find what I can do to make a difference, to move beyond the fear and the frustration to a sense of peace and compassion in the injustice074. One way I work through my strong feelings is through my characters. I am thinking specifically about Eva in Vinehart Farm. For her, everything in life seems to come a little harder. And she wants things to be fair for everybody, but that’s not how it is for her or for her town. I like how she struggles, and is brave enough to make the mistakes that move her forward. This is how I want to be–brave enough to make the mistakes that move me forward.
