Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States. And as far as we have come, we still have a long way to go to reach true equality for everyone.
How did get this far? How did the conspiracy theories and lies take the upper hand and get people who claim to be patriots and love this country decide to attack it's democratic foundation? Things should never have gotten this far.
Democracy takes work. You have to show up. Decide who best represents your beliefs and values and cast your ballot. If you don’t, the extremes are going to decide the course of your country for you.
