In this Winter Solstice season we celebrate the Light. The returning Light and the Light we hold. However it’s hard to not see the incredible darkness that has settled over our country. And wonder how we will find the way forward. The way out of this dark place.
I question whether we can look to our leaders, even and perhaps especially democrats, to find our way. But we can look to the fundamental values we hold and to others who share our vision of what is possible. And I am reminded we can look to our Irish heritage. A heritage of a people who overcame subjugation and oppression and genocide. They never forgot who they were. May we never forget who we are.
