“Take Your Broken Heart….”

In a world that has felt crazy and out of control for a while now, it is a true delight to know that there are women in the world like the radiant Viola Davis and the incomparable Meryl Streep. Their words from this year’s Golden Globe Awards are both touching and eloquent. Faced with the reality into which we are all about to be plunged, Meryl Streep’s words resonate profoundly. They bear listening to and repeating again and again.

  1. Reblogged this on the secret keeper and commented:

    A beautifully stated reason by Shawn MacKenzie to view Viola Davis intro to Meryl Streep and the speech Meryl made after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday 8th Jan 2017. The words coming from Meryl’s strained voice awakened the world & a certain late night Tweeter I prefer not to mention by name. Find out from Meryl


  2. Your link no longer leads anywhere. I’m afraid. However, Meryl’s speech can still be found on line by those who wish to do so, and thank you for posting it. Her words carry great value.



    Poor rich Donald
    Had a heart once too

    But has not yet
    Found the courage

    To admit it is broken
    And embark upon

    The painful journey
    Required to mend it
