Amend: The Fight For America

Just released on Netflix. I BEG you, IMPLORE you to watch. It is a MUST watch. This series will fire you up, and you will see the Blue Tsunami.

We cannot legislate morality - been there, done that. But it is imperative that we each examine and constantly amend and evolve our own conscious and subconscious, taught or learned prejudices.

January 6, 2021 was nothing new, even if the hate was directed at their own. And its aftermath isn't new either.

But white supremacy has now been entirely exposed, even more than it was in the 1960's. Covid-19 is a deadly virus, but racism is and always has been, our most virulent and lethal disease.

Equal Justice and Protection Under Law
Regardless of Race, Gender Identity (that goes for cis identities too), Who You Love or Where You Come From
The Right to Privacy - Women are in Control of their Own Bodies

The Promise of America has always been a Lie to anyone not white
But we CAN Repair, Repay and Heal
Remember, the real Promise of America is Hope
The whole Point IS the Promise of an Equal, Diverse Society
And it's a Commitment We The People Make to Each Other, Every Single Day - to Form that More Perfect Union
Love Always Wins!

But nothing is Guaranteed. We must continue to fight injustice on all fronts.
AOC did exactly the right thing in TX. She led the way and showed us that empathy and compassion is absolutely the correct approach for all us of to take.

We have to Know our History
We have to Know the Law
And that's how WE will change this Country, and fulfill that Promise
With Honor, Dignity and Respect

Bring the 14th Amendment to the forefront of the Conversation
Stand up for those 14th Amendment Rights
Get into Good Trouble - Necessary Trouble
Restore Empathy to our Immigration System and Policies
Reject the Politics of Fear and Anger

The Waiting Is Over
The Time Is Now
