In my meandering thoughts about freedom and independence for this US holiday week, two thoughts occurred to me:
- There’s power in numbers. When you’re the majority, you must organize, you must get out. You must vote and you must let your voice be heard. There is no space to sit back anymore. We’ve done that for too long.
- I’m aware I’m not proud of the world I’m leaving to my children right now. It’s up to me to do something about that, whether I’m in the majority or not.
If it’s to be, it’s up to me rings true now more than ever.
So be it.
