Beyond color and creed.
Beyond our stories, reasons and divisions.
Beyond our highest hopes and worst fears
there is a place we all know.
We all live here. Together.
It is our common humanity.
It is our common decency and goodness.
It is the kindness of strangers.
With it we can move mountains.
Without it we are done for.
Yet somehow we have become divided.
We've all branched off into our safe enclaves
We say really nasty stuff about folks we disagree with.
Sometimes it gets so bad we want to scream.
We yell at our screens, and at each other...
We have lost touch with our decency.
Seems like it's getting worse.
Let's make it better!
So let's get to work.
