When we are quiet, our spirits drifting
our rivers will speak to us
as we covet the love
in our hearts.
it is true sometimes
rivers will carry us
to make a stand.
My friends my river is speaking, and it says Nationalism falsely parades as patriotism. It’s not patriotic.
In one single year from 2016 to 2017 hate crimes against Hispanics in our country went up 40%.
In that same year 2016 to 2017 anti-Semitic hate crimes in our country went up about 60%!!
What does that tell you?
It says Nationalism causes hatred because of an atmosphere of division and strife.
Push back on hate!!
Please vote on November 6th!!
Hatred is un-American.
