Happy 4th everyone! Hope you had a good day.

Listening to “The Writer’s Almanac” this morning, I learned that Walt Whitman released the first edition of his epic poem, “Leaves of Grass”, 165 years ago today, in 1855. Here is his preface to the poem entitled, "This Is What You Shall Do”, which is every bit as moving as the poem itself:

"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."

Good advice.
Onward to a better world, better than the one we left before this pandemic. The slate is being wiped clean, the blood and the tears still being mopped up by “essential workers,” the future literally anything we want it to be now. Why not that which we’ve always wanted? The rich can not stop us, if we say so. Nor can a man with a badge and a gun, made impotent by the will of the people. The Orange One about to get the whoopin’ of a lifetime, if the Dems don’t blow it, as our tsunami overwhelms the ballot box. The Senate, too — ours! We just have to say the word.
