Today, perhaps more than any other day, the world will be watching our nation. The world will be watching us. With baited breath, we wonder what this new administration will bring. Now more than ever, what we do matters. How we respond matters. Don’t wait; act. Silence is tacit agreement. Speak. Loudly and often. We cannot allow our voices to be crushed under the weight of this Brave New World. If we don’t exercise our democratic right to raise our voices and let our representatives know our hearts, we will lose ground. We already have. The march to pick up lost ground begins now.
In his inaugural address, Trump said, “The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action. Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.”
Now arrives the hour of action. Yes. Now, and for the next four years. Let’s be willing to put in the time and the energy to show what the heart and fight and spirit of America is really about.
