Response to malaise (Reply #11)

Sat May 8, 2021, 08:32 PM

16. Thank you!

We all have different talents and abilities. I've worked on many foundations, but only a few roofs. The same, in various ways, holds for each and every one of us.

Our opposition wants to convince us it is too late, the storm is on, and there is nothing that we as a group or as individuals can do to stop it. That's what they were attempting to communicate on January 5. They continue to say it, and to destroy those foundations. It is, in reality, the twin of the "big lie" they tell about the election being stolen.

But it was millions and millions of ordinary people getting out to campaign, and to vote, that stopped them. As you and I agree, thus far the foundation has held. And if we all continue to work on it, our society will hold and push the hateful back under the their rock. Some fights are longer, and it can tire good people. Some begin to hope for a final victory. But democracy, like justice, is a process we must engage in while recognizing there isn't a finish line. There is only direction.
