first week of school: I am young, scrappy and hungry and I’m not throwing away my shot!

second week of school: I imagined death so much it feels more like a memory

Little Hamilton thing that gets me:

In “Right Hand Man”, General Washington is singing:

“It’s alright, you want to fight, you’ve got a hunger
I was just like you when I was younger”

and underneath that you hear a few notes that are pulled directly from “My Shot.” Specifically, the part in “My Shot” where Hamilton & Co. are singing the woahs.

Cool, right? Washington acknowledges Hamilton’s passion and the music alludes to the passion we’ve already seen displayed in “My Shot.” But wait, there’s more!

Now what you don’t know if you haven’t seen the musical is what’s going onstage at that point of “My Shot.” At this point, Hamilton has met his new boys, rebuffed Burr’s muzzling influence, transformed a chill pub into a hotbed of revolutionary fervor. Everyone is dancing. Everyone is singing.

AND UP ON THE FREAKING RAILING WHERE HISTORY WATCHES, WASHINGTON COMES OUT AND WATCHES.

Long before his official introduction, the man is up there, studying, his eyes on Hamilton and his hunger for more, his passion stirring up those around him, and Washington nods thoughtfully before exiting to await his turn on stage.

Let me tell you all, when I noticed Washington up there, I got head-to-toe chills, and now every time I listen to “Right Hand Man” and the way it recalls that moment, both for those who have only listened and those who have been able to see. So many levels of meaning and recall, so many chills.

Yesterday I marched in NYC’s peaceful protest against Trump and the misogyny, sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, climate change denial, and overall hate that he has legitimized.

I want to spread the message that we must join together and support each other in sustained action against this — so I borrowed some words from Lin and Hamilton.

Rise up.
