Have y’all been watching the impeachment hearings? I have to admit, for many of us, it’s getting exhausting. We’ve been watching Russian influence take hold of our government for four years. None of what is being revealed seems new, but it is refreshing to see some non-partisan government officials with a moral compass standing up and speaking truth to power. Especially when those patriots are women. Dr Fiona Hill testified today and she gives me hope that there are more good people behind the scenes holding our country together. A strong, intelligent and unflappable woman standing strong and stating facts in an articulate way that was also easy to understand, was what I needed to help get me through today. In between checking for updates on the hearings, I finished this necklace, that I officially name after her.
If democracy in America is maintained we will have women (and immigrants, see also LTC Vindman and Marie Yovanovitch), who bring the fire in the form of power and truth, to thank. Here is a highlight from today’s testimony:
Dr. Hill: "Some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia… did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that… for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves." pic.twitter.com/ezVvJYMf3k
