Making America Great Again

("The Day the Real Patriots Took a Knee")

The "sons of bitches" took a knee. 

One thing for which Mr. Trump deserves credit: the rebirth of activism in this country. Long dormant, with hazy images of burning bras or massive anti-war protests, a generation that seemed far from ready, willing and able, has now risen up to give us a meaningful collective voice.

The death of Obamacare has surely been averted, at least this long, because of the the onslaught of opposition from the millions who refused to sit idly by and watch it's destruction. 

The immigration ban brought us out of our seats and into the streets. And while we have learned that there is a limit to what we can accomplish, as Mr. Trump's new edict takes effect, there is no limit to fervor and heart.

And on the football fields we did not take a knee in surrender, but we rose up, taller than ever. This was about much more than even the racial animus of a despicable despot. It was an awakening. 

We are indeed mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore.

Thank you Mr. Trump for bringing out the better part of us. You really may make America great again.

Yes, you made me choke up and take a long deep breath before finishing your last sentence while reading your diary entry to my husband.
