The only problem is that their idea of tradition either never existed or only existed when women and people of color had fewer rights than white men." -Rick Jacobs, Courage Campaign

Your thoughts

As Rick says, we are living in a moment that will define history. It is excruciating, and daunting, and the defeats are disheartening. But we do win... occasionally. And, we do win eventually. And, most of all, we win every time that we refuse to accept defeat. In ten years we may all be sipping drinks on a beach somewhere, reminiscing about the dark ages that forged us. Beaten and battered as we have been, and will be, in the end we do, nonetheless, win.
