Mel’s Monday Musings: October 26, 2020

The injustice that happened tonight will not stand.

Amy Coney Barrett is an illegitimate Justice and make no mistake, justice will be served. Hang in there, friends.

I’m reminded on horrifying, terrible nights (and days…this administration has had so many) of the song, “Empress” by Snow Patrol. It gives me hope to keep on keepin’ on. Here are the lyrics, in part:

“You’re angry but you don’t know how to be that yet
It seems too much went wrong and all at once
Resistance seems impossible from down this low
And surely no one else can feel like this

But on the streets
You can see them gathering
And in your heart
You know they feel like you do

Sound and pulse and volume
Hands just reaching out for hands
This is almost overload
I said almost overload

Friends and foes and princes
Are all just human in the end
This is so damn simple yeah
It’s so damn simple

So standing in the steady throng of restless hope
You don’t feel like an outcast anymore
And something deep inside of you has wakened up
And you know that nothing’s gonna be the same again

And on these streets
You can see for what seems miles
Because in your heart
You know they feel like you do…”

We will get through this. We will right this ship. Don’t give up. And for the love of everything you hold dear, if you’re eligible to and have not done so already, VOTE.
