Dream from Italy

I long to see an end to systemic racism in my lifetime. A time when white America (of whom I’m a member) acknowledges our deep, racist roots as a nation and works hard to grow beyond white privilege and begin to take concrete steps to counteract our unconscious racial biases.

I also deeply long to see civility and decency among citizens, not just those in government but all of us. We can disagree on a myriad of subjects – have polar opposites of opinions and political views, but still treat each other with respect and decency.
