In talking to my brother today he said he has not been politically active before, but now he thinks that has to change. Below is my response.
Although I have not been that active in recent years I have in the past. But the march this week was different. Their were throngs of people their and the mood was not festive, nor depressing. It was determined. And they were of all ages and that is a big deal. It brought tears to my eyes.
I feel if we don’t show up and try to stop this we have let down every generation that has come before us and even more so those that are coming after us. Fascism is on the rise and we know, if unchecked, where it goes.
