I will not stop caring, whatever the cost.
I will not cease loving, no matter the consequences.
The political winds may howl above me,
scattering people like leaves in a storm,
but I will hold fast to the common ground,
the wisdom that once formed us.
Difference is not a crime. Diversity is not a threat.
Disagreement is not a failure.
Community requires of me what it requires of others:
a commitment to share in the process of justice.
There are no expendable human beings in that process,
only a sacrifice of privilege.
For the sake of the many, I will not stop caring for the few.
