Found on Facebook (so good!)

What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb?

What if our America is not dead but a country that is waiting to be born?

What if the story of America is one long labor?

What if all of our grandfathers and grandmothers are standing behind us now, those who survived occupation and genocide, slavery and Jim Crow, detentions and political assault?

What if they are whispering in our ears “You are brave”?

What if this is our nation’s greatest transition?

What does the midwife tell us to do?

BREATHE

And then?

PUSH!
