Michelle Obama shines out like a bright golden sunbeam in the deep darkness of our national despair and shame. When I am feeling hopeless, lost, and alone, she reminds me that there are good people in our country, that we have ideals worth fighting for, and that there are soundbites of hope that we can use to push back against their soundbites of hate.
She reminds us that we can build a more perfect union that comes closer to enacting our ideals of the equality and importance of everyone who contributes to making America a better place.
Fear not y’all! The fascist racists have not yet won. Rally to the cry that it is indeed OUR America.
