Profiles In Cowardice & Courage

This February constituents in town halls across the nation exercised their civil rights in voicing their concerns since the shit storm of #45's turntable of turmoil began.

There were more than their fair share of profiles of cowardice from so-called representatives, who either stood in silence, flew off to Europe, bowed out of attending or were too busy attending an award ceremony in place of facing the music.

The best chorus were of the children, the children.

Donald Trump makes Mexicans not important to people who are in Arkansas who like Mexicans, like me, like my grandma,” Toby Smith said. “And he’s deleting parks and PBS Kids just to make a wall.”

They were the true profiles of courage.

When 9-year-old Mitchel Collins, who goes to school in Sahuarita, asked at the end of the town hall why she thought Betsy DeVos was qualified to be the nation’s education secretary, McSally asked why he thought she was unqualified.
Collins immediately answered, saying DeVos said she wanted guns in schools to protect against grizzly bears.

Courage, indeed, arose from their harmony of humanity. We could all take notes from their sheet music of civil actions.
