I saw this
and I was disgusted.
I saw this response tweet from Mika
and I giggled.
Then I remembered this
and I realized that I, too, have been sucked into the morass.
I miss the Obamas and their ideals.
I'm going to try to live up to them.
After all, this is my country, the land that I love.
I won't participate in its denigration.
I'll try to keep my head up, my thoughts positive, and my energy engaged.
That's my plan, and I'm sticking to it.
On this 4th of July Weekend, I'm rededicating myself to the inclusiveness that is My America.
I'm off to buy more sweets from the Syrian ladies,
recent immigrants trying to establish themselves as bakers.
This is My America!
