America is hurting. It is less than a month now until the election. I think the next few months – regardless of who wins – are going to be critical. While at this point it seems unlikely that Donald Trump will defeat Hillary, the rhetoric and tactics of the right have massively changed the landscape. It is important to us, as citizens of a representative democracy, to remember that there are better ways than appealing to the common lowest denominator. The challenges the world is facing are matters of a global scale. We must keep a clean house before we are able to tackle these issues. And we need to fight back against the increasing wave of lies and denouncement of facts from the right.
Those of us with the ability to say something must speak.
I can no longer remain silent.
