It’s a cold and broken “Hallelujah”
Time to heal.
Time to listen to each other.
We could do worse than organize thousands of huge, local choirs comprised of Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and progressives, coming together to create something beautiful.
In fact, I think that’s how our country began.
“The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes.”
“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.“
~ Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, 1865.
He was assassinated less than 6 weeks later.
And still we healed.
And still we are the beacon of hope in the world.
