A Meme from the Internet

Today, We March.
We March for our Lives!
We March for Civil Rights!
We March for Equality!
We March for Freedom!
We March for Justice!

In our Writing Group last week, the prompt was “This is AMERICA to Me!”

Freedom!
Truth as Truth, not as Truthiness or Post-Truth or MisSpeaking or what we used to call simply “LIES”
HILLARY CLINTON, Not KELLY ANNE CONWAY,
The wretched Gollum Spin-Doctor…

I don’t grab anyone by the Pussy!
