Today, as I was sworn in, I held in my jacket pocket copies of the ships’ manifests recorded at Ellis Island when my Great Grandfather Israel arrived in 1911 and my Great Grandmother Annie arrived in 1913.
A century later, their great grandson was elected to the U.S. Senate.
The fog is lifting.
We will build a world defined by compassion, freedom, health, and opportunity for all — founded on love for each other and rooted in our common humanity — a world where our commitment to human rights is too strong to be broken by greed, cruelty, and hate.
Even though the man who incited that insurrectionist attack on the U.S. Capitol will soon be out of office, we have hard work to do to repair our struggling democracy, heal our wounds, & establish politics based on love for each other rather than fear, hate, and corruption.
