Why can’t we have politicians...
be as unselfish as our soldiers risking life to protect country... be as courageous as our firefighters crawling beneath smoke to rescue someone unknown... be as invested as a teacher spending her own money for classroom supplies... be as brave as our police who confront violence to protect us... be as reassuring as a psychotherapist uncovering a person’s darkness... be as professional as a contractor making it right even when no one will see it... be as ethical as a scientist scrapping years of work that proves untrue... be as loving as a preschool teacher who will never be remembered... be as determined as a student preparing to lead in a distant future... be as faithful as a farmer so that we may all eat... be as generous as the good Samaritan because someone needed help... be as dedicated as a physician awakened at 4 AM... be as thorough as a pilot who has checked and rechecked... be as creative as an artist finding inspiration... be as morally guided as our clergy aspiring to a greater good... be as inquisitive as a philosopher in search of meaning... be as generous as the philanthropist making it possible... be as watchful as the nurse over an ill patient... be as careful as a journalist verifying the facts... be as important as the small business owner providing a way to live... be as ubiquitous as the cleaners & maintenance workers who hold off the decay... be as skilled as the engineers and architects who give birth to the new... be as inclusive as family for the brief time we are all here
We believe we can. We are the 99%
