” I wake up every morning in a house built by slaves.” —Michelle Obama
“Shut not your doors to me proud libraries,
For that which was lacking on all your well-fill’d shelves.
yet needed most, I bring,
Forth from the war emerging, a book I have made,
The words of my book nothing, the drift of it every thing,
A book separate, not link’d with the rest felt by the intellect,
But you ye untold latencies will thrill to every page.”
There isn’t much more to be said here except that we can listen to the wise words here and work to change our world from what it is today, to the visions that others like Michelle Obama see. We can make the American dream work again and we don’t need to exclude other people or be racists, or haters. We can build America up again with compassion, gentleness, helping, sharing and caring about each other.
