Silverlake Picture Show / by Ellen Steves

Last week, the Silverlake Picture Show screened "A League Of Their Own".

Besides featuring queen goddess Geena Davis; it was a great reminder that progress starts and stops. We take two steps forward and three steps back. You could feel it permeate through the crowd; we were grateful, we were relieved. We could love America because America is baseball. We could love ourselves because we are baseball. 

It felt good to be hopeful. 

That's my favorite thing about the picture show. It's not just movies. There is a thirst in this city. We are craving to connect. We want community, now more than ever before. Gathering together to celebrate being alive. 

Because they can't take away our right to meet.
