Who We Need Now

I can only say that in these times and events the one voice we need more than any, the one person we need standing up for all of us and the one woman we need to represent all women is Barbara Jordan. I remember her on TV with the Nixon impeachment hearings and listened to her other speeches and interviews.

All you have to do is listen to her 1976 Democratic concention keynote speech or her opening speech on the Nixon impeachment hearings, found here. She is the one person, the one woman but more so the one voice we need to speak for all of us. She is missed more than ever. Her words and her voice, words spoken with such power, clarity and sincerity.

She is what we need now and sadly missed.
