Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on. — Thurgood Marshall
Thinking About —
This from the NYTimes. The hardest thing for me is this…58% of white men and 55% of white women voted for Trump. How the eff?
I don’t know how to heal this, how to get over this, or how to fix it and that is the thing that most upsets me.
Grateful For —
Laughter. It is certainly necessary! I found this most brilliant, and yes…the internet remains undefeated!
Live look at the White House bunker where Trump is trying to stop the counting of ballots.

The tenacity of the Black community. Thank goodness, they did not give up! They truly saved this election! I am so proud of Philadelphia, whose wise and wonderful voters just gave Joe a lead of 5,587 votes in PA. (And let’s not forget Detroit either… their final results: Joe Biden, 93.51% and Donald Trump, 5.06%… oh hell yeah!)
BREAKING: Joe Biden has taken the lead in PA by 5,587 votes.

I believe that is game, set, match with 273 Electoral Votes! Thank you, Philly!!
The Avett Brother’s to start our weekend celebration!
See you all back here next week!
The statistic from the NYTimes really hit me in the gut. As thankful as I am to hear that Biden is on track to win, our journey of healing is far from over. Thank you for all you have done to keep the democratic process going! Rest and relax this weekend!
Things keep looking more and more hopeful, but like you, I will never, ever understand how any woman could vote for him, and 58% of white men? He’s a reprehensible human being and should only have gotten about 5% of the vote. But that video is terrific! I thank you and have passed on the laughter to several others. Have a good weekend, Kat!
I had not seen those numbers from Detroit — and they are incredible! Very proud of my dad’s hometown!
I am not ready to call it just yet, but I am feeling so hopeful today!
AND ATLANTA! Stacey Abrams is our hero!
I’m always cautious about getting excited before any official word, but I will say my teary eyes have been happy & grateful ones, for a change!!
Thank you for sharing that clip, brilliant, so clever. I am watching from over the pond with a mixture of horror and disbelief at what is unfolding. I am so glad that your country finally has the result it needs to start mending the great chasms that have fractured over the past four years.
I am a very, very proud white woman who did not and never could vote for Trump. He is despicable. I am hoping we can try to move forward, it will be hard but we have no choice, still today it is is time to celebrate and to heal.
