gratitude-a-thon day 2011: thank you, alabama


Thank you, Alabama.

Thank you fromĀ all the chambers of my heart, for making me feel like this year wasn’t an episode of Stranger Things (which if you haven’t watched, you must stop what you’re doing andĀ binge immediately, if not sooner) and putting me back in a state of hope.

Thank you for not allowing a sexual predator (and criminal) to once again become someone who leads the country. Thank you to the black women of Alabama who said “No, we will not allow this to happen.”

Thank you to the continued resisters who refuse to allow the president’s brand of leadership to become normal. There is nothing normal or acceptable here.

Thank you, Doug Jones for being a principled and hard working man for the people. If ever we needed you, it’s right this minute.

Thank you, Alabama. Thank you.
