I Believe


“In small towns, and big cities, we came together as Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to stand up and say that we are one nation, we are one people, and our time for change has come.”
Barack Obama

Inspired by the song I Believe.

I believe - despite Charlottesville, despite one Philly Starbucks’ manager, despite all outrageous and insidious behaviors, I believe.

I believe in the future that is coming to America. So, stand up! Stand up, America! Stand up for Trayvon. Stand up for Rodney. Stand up for Sandra Bland and Walter L. Scott.  Stand up for justice and, for God’s sake, stand up for decency!

Stand up and say it: I believe - and then do something to make it happen. Like try being kind to one another, to everyone, and take a step up, a step toward becoming one nation and one people.
