We’re in the gap between devastation and revolution

DUMMERSTON — Prepare for a revolution, when the young people and others usually disenfranchised rise up.

The Supreme Court's rulings are deplorable and devastating. These terrible times will encourage voting to make Congress more supportive of women and children, gay men and women, and the BIPOC community.

“Even though something good always seems to come from something bad, there's a gap,” Srinivas Rao, creator of the Unmistakable Creative podcast, wrote in a 2016 essay on Medium.com. “And it's learning to live in that gap, in that discomfort that we grow, evolve, learn, and our pain becomes a pathway to greater levels of significance, meaning and accomplishments.”

So we all need to take a deep breath and then turn our attention to taking action: writing letters for people running for office in other states where races are close, going to demonstrations, talking to those people who don't vote.

Life will get better.
