We’ve come so far these past few months on the road to health care reform. We’ve had to cross the ugly racist backroads of a nation, mobs in false masks claiming fascism, Nazis, and Nativism, but meaning “we don’t need an uppity President telling us what to do with OUR country.”
But we didn’t engage. We stayed focus on the mission, where the clock is ticking on so many lives.
We’ve also traversed fictitious maverick Facebook streams and have done what we can to educate people on the difference between facts and blatant manipulative misinformation.
But there was the mission, and so many lives are on the line. We stayed the course.
Most recently, we’ve scaled the mountains of DC to get votes out of the House and garner enough votes in the Senate for it to move on with debates.
But even though we can see the prize in our mind and a blur of it up ahead, we must stay focused. There is more work to do and we can’t be distracted by weapons of mass distractions that are sure to lay ahead, like land mines in our path.
We can’t get distracted. We must call our Senators. We must put forth the truth and separate misinformation. We must take the energy that goes into disbelief that there is opposition to saving lives and turn that into positive action.
We can do this.
