3. Patti LaBelle speaks for me

It's easy, and non-controversial, to speak out against Trump and call him names. Evereybody's doin' it.

It takes real courage to stand up in front of a massive audience at a solemn, bipartisan occasion that includes the former Republican president, the (Republican) Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and the (Republican) Speaker of the House, and after belting out the last line of "A Change is Gonna Come," smile and yell out "Hillary Clinton!" And then walk off.

A moment of beauty, and not something many would risk their careers on.
