What Are You Doing to Save Our Democracy?

When I was a child in elementary school we always started our day with the “Pledge of Allegiance,” the last line of which ended in the words “One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” At that time it was just something we did each day, and I really didn’t think about what the words meant, but now that I am living as an adult in a divisive world that often seems filled with hate, I think about what liberty and justice for all really mean. We are living at a time that threatens those words and our democracy. I have seen a lot of administrations and presidents come and go, but I have never experienced a time so full of dissension and hate as we are now living through.
