I Believe In Yesterday

After three days of binge re-watching Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing and basking in the comforting nostalgia of America’s often wise and compassionate yesterday, I collide, heart first, with the cold and cruel reality of America today…and my tears of shame and sorrow overwhelm my soul.

It was not that many years ago that President Kennedy inspired us to reach for the Moon. Then President Obama inspired us to reach for “the angels of our better nature”. And now?…And now??…And now it is all I can do to reach for the Kleenex. My tears of shame and sorrow have yet to run dry.

What If We The People of the Human Race joined hands and reached for the love that dwells within us all? What If, indeed.
