Time to work for change

A  day of national mourning for many of us

who wanted to believe that we had moved beyond hate.

If you were surprised by a vote for hate,

it’s because you surround yourself with loving people.

We have a lot of work to do in this country to make change happen.

In line at the grocery store today, the Vons checker,

said to the woman in front of me, “It’s a glorious day in this country.

They have finally been put in their place.”

They are us.

We are them.

Our place is this country; it is our country to change.
