missing in action
The background noise of Mr. Trump and his defenders isn’t going away anytime soon.
The foreground clarity of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamal Harris isn’t going away either.
In fact, each day brings a bit of hope. Not because Biden and Harris won the election, but because the next POTUS is taking his task seriously. Not for popularity or personal gain, but for the heart and soul of this nation.
Still, I don’t wear rose-colored glasses.
Wealthy patrons of Mr. Trump and sold-out members of the Senate and Congress have a lot to lose. So do white people who feel entitled to more and better, or who refuse to look into the history and hearts of our black citizens and learn to lament and repent.
Showing up. I can’t remember when our current POTUS showed up for all of us (including his followers), much less for the rest of the world (unless it benefited him). I’m more than ready for a full stop.
