Loc: Somewhere out there
Nearly a year ago in Philadelphia, the cradle of our republic, the City of Brotherly Love, first lady Michelle Obama gave the most stirring speech of the Democratic National Convention. If she had been the party’s presidential nominee, the outcome might have been very different. Instead, she was a mom telling the world how she instructed her daughters as she raised them from girls into adulthood in the White House.
Obama spoke of her family’s values: “How we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith. How we insist that this hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country. How we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is: when they go low, we go high.”
The nation cheered. It did not listen. Or not nearly enough people listened. Certainly not candidate Donald Trump. Sadly not President Donald Trump.
