Yesterday, so many of American made the unthinkable Sophie’s Choice of protesting during a pandemic. As John Edwards used to say (I know, I know!), we are living in two Americas. It’s not just the murder of George Floyd by the police, or the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, or the racist treatment of NYC birdwatcher Christian Cooper.
Or the Trump-Virus’ disproportionate harm to non-white Americans.
Or the 103,000+ Americans who died from it. So far, that is.
Or the 40M Americans who are now unemployed.
Or the on-coming Second Great Depression.
Or the Billionaires who are making off like bandits.
It’s that it’s happening all at once.
I don’t have much else to say except stay strong and keep healthy and be kind to each other, we need to vote out these monsters this autumn.
(Repeat after me: “You’re a hero and the heroes don’t let the monsters win.”)
