Like Fleetwood Mac–A landslide.
Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister’s eyes, into
Your brother’s face, your country
And say simply
We will heal.
What a night of contrast, going from celebrating the first African American president and the defeat of another anti-abortion ban in South Dakota, to the narrow victory of the hateful and bigoted Proposition 8 in California. It seems that in the culture wars, we’re winning on race and abortion. The new front lines are gay rights and immigration. Equal rights mean just that. We need to be good to each other. All of us.
