A Long Twilight Struggle
Eric LaMont Gregory
We are faced with a political environment that is highly charged and,
at times, ugly, hateful, and divisive.
We must remember that democracy is not the absence of lively debate;
but the forbearance of political violence.
The question we must keep asking ourselves is this:
How do we keep going?
How do we keep going,
when we know there are people out there who have turned
their backs on the ideals of this nation?
When the forces of division shun a more perfect union,
as well as the belief that this nation is dedicated to securing the blessings of liberty
to ourselves and our prosperity?
Perhaps, the lesson here is this:
That there is always going to be someone out there whose actions we cannot make sense of.
That there is always going to be something out there with the ability to scare us,
to threaten us, and to terrorize us so much so we cannot move.
But, in the midst of the ugliness, the hatred and the terror we have no choice
but to find the strength of character, the faith and the courage to continue
what is a long twilight struggle to fashion a nation that is truly
~ we the people ~
Otherwise, the forces of division win.
Our strength of character;
and our courage will see us through,
and that is how we keep going.
