I was at a board meeting tonight and we open each meeting with an invocation. A man on our board, an immigrant from Central America, led that invocation by praying for immigrants and refugees in this time of university and for God to protect us all.
When I left that board meeting I had a CNN update on my phone that Trump had rescinded protections of transgender students in public schools.
On my way home I listened to MSNBC in the car. They were playing one of the many town halls happening right now. I heard the desperate pleas of a mother whose son will lose his ability to be insured under the new healthcare plan being proposed. I heard her congressman talking, dispassionately, over her desperation.
I got to my garage, parked, and just cried at the everyday reminders of how our government is so poised, willing, and able to sacrifice our humanity.
They sacrifice our humanity for money.
They sacrifice our humanity for power.
We need to sacrifice them at the ballot box in two years.
Do not stop fighting.
Do not lose your passion for what’s right.
