to President Obama, re:

“protecting the Constitution and restoring respect for civil liberties”,

the ACLU asked me to put it in my own words, and this is what I wrote:

“If we slip any further we will begin to drown.  And who will be there to lift us up?  We are the giant everyone wants to see fall; we are also still the hope of the world.
Our history is not pretty, but our better selves have striven toward “freedom for all” since building on this land.  As often as you bring up Doctor King, let his spirit guide you to your own power, and help you to raise us up to embody our dreams.”
