My friend, Marcia, tipped me off to this picture and this essay.
I found it deeply, profoundly moving.
It speaks to me of the many layers of hope we need in this country - hope that the personal situations which frame our political perspectives have found an accessible ear, a compassionate soul, a brave heart and an intelligent mind deeply committed to leading us to the change we seek.
This is one snapshot, one important image, one critical, complex perspective of what hope for the future looks like.
Go ahead and read it. Just bring a few tissues.
