“On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
~ H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)
As yet I cannot comprehend the ills that have been ordained, nor how they came to be, nor how anyone justifies these creeds. As yet I cannot see a way to fight these ills that threaten me, that threaten us, and our children and their children, and this innocent Earth with the bounty she so selflessly shares while we systematically poison her. As yet I cannot rightly communicate my utter, utter dismay. So for today as I struggle to comprehend, as I struggle for words, as I struggle to fathom a response, I will honor my speechlessness and I will weep.
