I realize that each of us must follow a different path while on this journey of life. I am aware that not everyone believes it is his/her responsibility to stand up for the basic human values that were delineated in the "Bill of Rights"--we are a nation founded on the principle of separation of church and state, the principle of freedom of religion, the inherent equality of all. Women have the ultimate authority over their own bodies. Women do deserve equal pay. Black Lives Do Matter. We need to embrace comprehensive immigration reform honoring the amazing men and women who come here for a better life, making our lives much better with their bravery. We need a single-payer healthcare system. We need to control rampantly increasing drug prices. We need to halt the endless cycle of war. We need to care for political refugees who are suffering on an enormous scale. The are so many steps we, as a people, need to take to ensure that we, as a nation, stand for righteousness. WE ALL NEED TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE..... There is so much to be done;but FIRST the Trump cesspool must be drained.
I just volunteered with the ACLU. I've been a member for years--now is the time to stand up. There are many other ways to participate in the fight for equality and respect for all. Each of us who truly cares about our amazing nation needs to find a way to be counted.
