She’d come here tonight to prove a point. A concert, a STAGE, set and left wide open to her influence. She could have taken it ALL, RIPPED his precious message away from him while he PUSHED it to the masses; undermined the entire night.
No one has paid her. No one has asked her. She’d come here under her own volition, because she HATES him.
Correia dos Santos and his STUPID fortune. His DUMB LUCK, RAW TALENT and his GOOD HEART that SAVED him from a fate not dissimilar to hers. SAVED him from a jaded existence on the fringes of society, hell bent on tearing it apart for no good reason …
But, even as his set comes to a close, she can’t help but sit in the shadows and listen. Listen to fluid hope, to the sound that carries it through the air and into the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people that have come to hear it.
is bernie sanders the best person running for president this election? yeah. he is. by a pretty wide margin. but that isn’t saying a lot?? i mean.. how hard is it to be a better person than donald trump? not very. and if elected.. he’ll still be president of the united states. one of the cruelest, most violent countries on the planet. that’s not going to magically disappear because bernie is in office. and also let’s not forget that many elected officials don’t really follow up on their campaign promises. bernie sanders isn’t going to start a revolution. his supporters really need to stop acting like hes is america’s perfect hero, and like doubting him, disliking him, or criticizing him is damning us all to hell.
edit: originally this post read “america’s messiah” instead of “america’s perfect hero”. it was a very poor, thoughtless choice of words on my part, and i’m sorry.
