Meryl Streep

Well known artists can be a powerful voice in our society.   Last night during the Golden Globes award ceremony, Meryl Streep used hers to eloquently admonish some of Donald Trump’s past actions:

“That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same. … Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence insights violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

She ended by quoting her friend Carrie Fisher:  “Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
