There are two posts from the last week that I found particularly moving and important. Neither Jeanne D'Arc nor Kim Pearson are new to such writing. They are both writers with impressive range, but it just so happened that they each wrote compelling, personal posts about their own experiences on the same day. I think our current, more collective experiences of this country's profound, systemic evils may have something to do with that synchronicity.
Kim does an amazing job bringing together her own experiences of race, gender, motherhood and disability. It's very moving writing on the personal level and deeply important politically.
