I didn't see the Golden Globes, but definitely heard about this speech. Thank you for posting it.

I was out with friends last night and one of them told me that another of our friends is a big Meryl Streep fan, and respected her right to her opinion, but thought the venue was not the place to express her feelings.

This type of protest has been going on for years and years. I don't know why people continue to be surprised. I think they shouldn't watch the award shows if they are worried about being offended.

As for what she Meryl Streep said, I understand and find it more important to spread awareness than to keep an award show on topic. We have to be vigilant until the new president proves his unbiased allegiance.

I have always been a huge fan of Meryl Streep. I don't watch shows like the Golden Globe or the Oscars but I think if something needs to be said, this is the platform to say it. After all, many people who never watch the news will watch this.

And I hope she is successful with her speech. Until then, keep informing the public!

Thanks for this,

Sometimes, we are forced to choose a venue from where we can be heard...

So very true. And I am thankful there are people like Meryl Streep who use those venues that might be followed by people who don't get the information otherwise.

Happy Monday,
