Just when you thought it couldn’t get any stranger, the country takes another step towards… I don’t know, anarchy? Divisiveness, at the very least. And so, we’re left to pick up pieces in such a way that we have to be careful how we handle them – they are still fragile, and it could break even more egregiously.
The nation, this democracy, is an experiment, one that generations have believed in and worked towards perfecting. There is no claim to perfection, of course, but the attempts can be made, and appreciated.
I like the words of Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse: “When something’s ugly, talking about beauty isn’t just permissible, it’s obligatory.”
The belief I have, and that we all should have, is that next week will be better. And we can work to make it so.
