Margaret, maybe we have this all wrong. Maybe the big news didn’t happen on Tuesday. Maybe it was Wednesday. They say Trump woke a sleeping giant, but maybe that giant didn’t wake up before the election. Maybe it woke after the election when we all finally realized that everything we hold true and dear about this nation can indeed be taken away. Maybe, just maybe the sleeping giant is actually the millions who trusted in hope and love instead of those who walked into a polling booth and secretly voted for hate and fear.
I saw a map today of voters age 18-25. The map was shockingly blue from coast to coast and even in the middle. Could this be true? And if so, how do we ensure those voters don’t become jaded?
I am not sure what is next for Margaret & Helen but we are not dead yet. And I’ll be damned if we go down without a fight. We’ll promise to try and hold on until 2020 if you promise to hold on with us.
First up, 2018 midterms. We’ll be here. Will you?
Whomever we are and whatever color we are, and whatever age we are, and whatever gender we are, and whatever sexual preference, religious belief, city or town, church, mosque or synagogue… we are awake now. And this is our country.
We are battle worn but not battle weary. Someone has to watch that skunk Trump and keep him in line. And someone has to watch the Republican powerhouse and make sure they don’t overreach. Our elected Dems need us now more than ever.
Wake up! Wake up! I mean it. Really.
