When half of your nation's voters supports a misogynistic racist as president, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and despairing. That's a sane reaction… for a little while.
Meanwhile, it's encouraging to see the other half at work.
Starting with my state, Minnesota, electing Ilhan Omar!
“Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation.
“It is the very nature of this fight for civil rights and justice and equality that whatever gains we make, they will not be permanent. So we must be vigilant. Do not despair. Do not be overwhelmed. Do not throw up our hands when it is time to roll up our sleeves and fight for who we are.”
