Better get started

I was talking with a young worker at the grocery store tonight about Bernie Sanders, and our movement to build a more just compassionate society. I said it’s difficult facing every entrenched interest there is, and people who are just frightened of too much change.

I said hey, I try to remember that it took hundreds of years to end slavery in America, it took dozens of years to get the right to vote for women. I said maybe when you’re my age we will have got a lot closer to what we are working on. He was looking down the whole time listening and he looks up at me and smiles and says, “well, I better get started now then!”
