Hello, Friday folks! It was a week that continued to stress us out, but also one filled with the kinds of moments that remind us all of how far we have come toward achieving a greater union. It is a reminder of what can be achieved in our country, and why we must all continue to be dedicated to the unfinished work.
Will Donald Trump ever go away? Probably not as soon as most of us would like, which would have been about seven decades ago. Right now, hearing Donald Trump’s name almost exclusively tied to legal actions doesn’t bug one nearly as much as hearing the droning dirge of bigotries from people like Marjorie Taylor Greene or Paul Gosar. And there is good news this week, as Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed and becomes the first Black woman on the Supreme Court in the history of our country. That is a historic moment worth being alive for.
