A Bit of Saturday Wisdom.....


"This is America, "a white Catholic male Republican judge was murdered on his way to greet a Democratic Jewish woman member of Congress, who was his friend. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year old Mexican-American gay college student, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon, all eulogized by our African-American President." Mark Shields, PBS

Awesome. Absolutely awesome (I know I use that word too much, but it does apply here). What a great quote by Mark Shields. What a great video of Daniel Hernandez. I love it that he is an American hero and a Hispanic man in the state where we see racism against undocumented Americans abound.

I know there are right wing nuts out there that choke on his words, if they can even bear to sit through the video at all. This is the turning of the tide. The right extremists are being exposed by these events. I am optimistic (though it may be a long road ahead) that the tide is turning and we will see America become what America is supposed to stand for: freedom, democracy, free speech, free religion and common decency.

Just now read the Shields quote- love the graphic you paired it up with too.

Refreshing really to think of all this loving diversity in the face of adversity.
