This Is How We Find Peace, Justice and Reconciliation: Solidarity

The article in Forbes gives me hope. Don't let the nihilists and haters bring the moment down. This is how a new beginning starts. The imagery and emotion behind the actions are profound and uplifting: police joining protestors to say, This Needs to Stop, Now. The acts of solidarity were not limited to one city but scattered across the country. I was glad to hear that Camden, NJ was one of those cities.

This is how we change the status quo, not through violence and burning the world down but by changing hearts and minds. Taking the knee is an indelible image, one that only the soulless/mindless can argue. But here's the thing:

There really are more Americans of goodwill than there are haters.

In All the Darkness and Chaos, A Tiny Beam of Light

In this case, a 2-pound, 2-ounce beam of light named Cassandra. Today I am officially a grandmother to a tiny miracle who still has a rough road ahead because she'll require heart surgery in the next few days. But she is in the world and I'm officially a Nana, a first-timer.

If you would, could or are so inclined, say a few prayers for our tiny light Cassandra.

Kellyanne Conway Can't Help Herself

The Queen of Alternative Facts is out spinning the spin that Joe Biden's promise to choose a woman as VP is like a hormone-laden Frat House Bro: Get Me A Woman. She's none too fond of Susan Rice either, who she claims 'can't be trusted.'

Time to look in the mirror, Kellyanne. No amount of Botox makes you look trustworthy. Just saying, Sister. You're time in the sunshine is coming to an end. Along with the Infant King's.

Go to 2:58 for Conway's comments on Biden's VP list, 'binders of women' snark. No shame inside the Trumphumper group. None.
