Fifty years ago Dr. King said, “Only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the stars - for all of you who have risen to the challenges of our times. Our resistance grows stronger as we stand together, creating constellations of light that overcome the dark.
Next year’s midterms promise the opportunity to grow our resistance and make an even bigger difference. With our votes from abroad, we can make change happen in every election across the US, following our wins this year with many more, taking back the House and Senate, and flipping state legislatures from red to blue.
In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, full of friends, family and your favorite food. May your pie crusts not crumble, your turkey cook to perfection and your dinner table debates all end with a round of reminders about what you are thankful for this year.
P.S. If you are ready to make a difference next year, please volunteer to help get out the vote, to help organize, and to help support our volunteers’ work. And please do add a note to your calendar to request your ballot for the midterm elections, starting on January 1, 2018.
