Unlike three years ago I give you the words of a Raleigh, NC pastor as to why I marched again this weekend and on January 21.
This is an unapologetic, nonpartisan affirmation ofLife— not just life that agrees with us, not just life of one complexion or orientation or nation of origin, not just life that aligns on every issue, or votes the way we vote, worships the way we worship, loves the way we love.
This resistance is not a rebellion against nation or an act of treason—but one of the deepest patriotism. We resist because we believe that the America we aspire to us is big enough for all who wish to be here, because we believe that its beauty is in the richness of its diversity, because we remember it was born out of people seeking refugee fromtyranny, because it is not a birthright to be guarded but an undeserved blessing to be shared.
