Posting this on day of dark remembrance…
Pure water cannot freeze. There must be a bit of impurity for ice crystals to form around. Similarly, it seems that from time to time, our democracy needs a bit of dirt, filth, and horror, around which we may form beautiful crystals of hope, change, and freedom for all.
“But we must accept one central truth and responsibility as participants in a democracy: Freedom is not a state; it is an act. It is not some enchanted garden perched high on a distant plateau where we can finally sit down and rest. Freedom is the continuous action we all must take, and each generation must do its part to create an even more fair, more just society.”
