Let’s just turn today over to JTO, from my Sunday post, reminding me to get off my ass, shall we?
The hour is running late, that is true, but it is also just as true that it is still early.
It is true that this is a frustrating, infuriating fight – but it is the fight that we have always had. It was the fight for the recognition of every working man’s humanity, of every woman’s suffrage and every POC’s equality. And those we fight are never defeated, they simply retreat, regroup and try again – just like we do. Just like we have to. Just like we have always done.
Will they first take, then corrupt our 4th Estate? Will they deny us the vote? Will they say our gigging economy is because of freedom and irresponsibly tasty avocado on toast brunches? Will they stack the Supreme Court, and start 4 month old children in kennels? Will they kill every single living thing on the planet – from microscopic plankton to Africa’s megafauna – for sport and a selfie?
Of course they will, or they will try.
And blast that crater we are all in – just a little bit bigger, deeper – even as we work to fill it in, and at the same time prevent them from making it worse.
Please, keep at it.
Go read the whole thing.
I was so tired before I read that, dude. And now I feel like I could run through a brick wall. THANK YOU.
