At the polls

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                  Farmers and bankers, welfare queens and executives, gun toters and tree huggers all showed up, lined up, spoke up. Some won the day, some lost. But everybody spoke.

Yeah, votes are bought, and the poor systematically silenced, and the lazy stay home to conserve energy for whining. But.

A woman came in with her two little girls to be heard. It was this that set a song in my throat, this that everyone longs for. Now her two little girls have tasted this, my greatest hope for them, a power that, win or lose will change the world, a power you have every day, the one thing that makes us great: that we listen to each other.
