Our official leaders have failed so badly;

Embroiled us in an escalating war

And a failing economy.

They would have us choose

One of two self interested 

political parties.

And yet are there are signs of hope,

Rays of sunshine.

Ordinary people stepping forward to help a neighbor,

To give love and support.

“Don’t worry, I can walk your dog 

while you get better.”

“I’ll Ask my grand kids to come and help you winterize  your house.”

“We’re not rich, but if you need help with medical bills, we’re here.”

Can we build a new world under and alongside the old one?

Are we doing it?

We’ll walk together.

No questions asked.

No quid pro quo.
