Last week we had an election. The results mean that those of us who view things like clean air and health care as basic rights are going to have to work harder and speak more loudly and clearly than we ever have before.
We have to wedge ourselves into the cracks, take root, and push through the wall of short-sighted self-interest.
Last week’s election results were dispiriting, but we can’t give up, we have to get through to the other side of that wall, and climb that fence.
Until we can light it up from the inside out.

Thank you for this very important message, Judith. We will take it to heart (especially in this very blue state, where all of the Congressional Democrats (which are all of the delegation except for one Representative) won, all statewide elections were won by Democrats, and the Democrats increased their majorities in each chamber of the state Legislature. We should have ample energy to focus on the nationwide picture).
