I know what we appear to be fighting against.
Trump. We dislike him and his politics. His racism. His destruction of our ecology. His destruction of our belief in who we are and what we stand for. His distortion and denial of any understandable truth and so much more.
So today, I was watching a retro view of the gigantic march on Washington, a march staged by tens of thousands of people. Even after Dr. Martin Luther King died, people continued marching. White people and black people and yellow people and red people were marching together. We had a reason to be there, an affirmative reason. Something constructive. We had a cause. A plan. We could see the future.
That’s what we do not have now. We are seriously lacking a positive, healthy reason to get out there into the world. If we don’t stitch together a concrete and progressive plan, we will fail.
The people — us — need more than hatred, shame, anger, and fear. We need a map and a direction. A goal with a potentially positive outcome. It would be a really great thing if we also had candidates who we believed might be able to put their heart and soul into making these things happen. For real. In this lifetime.
We need a plan. A good plan. Soon.
