Every once in a while you see a little glimpse from the days of old that gives you a good kick in the pants. It reminds you that you are not alone in your walk. You are not trailblazing. You are continuing a journey that started long before you ever stepped foot on the earth and hopefully, if you do your job well enough, it will continue long after you’re gone. Hate will always be in our world. It always has. But, hate does not need to have power. When it does, it’s called fascism.
With a fascist running for President of the United States, the relevance of this clip is obvious:
We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
Throughout history, we have had to fight this force. Now we are at a crossroads. Do we allow a fascist access to the White House and provide him opportunity to harm our democracy? Do we give him that chance? Or, do we unite and not even let him get close?
I guess we will know on Election Day.
Watch this moving performance, here:
Note: The music in this clip was added in recent years. It is “Time” by Hans Zimmer from the 2010 film “Inception.”
