I am a lover of words. Poignant and powerful markers of character and intent. Nothing is as satisfying as succinctly expressing what moves the heart, what captivates our intellect and defines our curiosities. Yet, so much of 2016 has left me without them, speechless and muted. I would love to read the words of Steinbeck, Abbey or Whitman had they encountered our country's current state of "transition".
I was deeply moved by Michelle Obama's speech in New Hampshire earlier this year and I can't forget her words.
