Letter: Vote to promote equality, justness

I've just read Mason Hintermeister's letter to the editor of Thursday, June 21, 2018. Such emotional maturity exhibited by this 15-year-old, expressing himself so clearly and well, though in deep anger. My grandchildren, just a few years older and younger than he, are like-minded and like-hearted, and in this I am hopeful for our world's future — that indeed love and compassion will overcome the narrow views created by irrational fear of "otherness" and "not-enoughness."

I too listened to the tapes and saw the pictures of the children kept in detention, separated from their parents by our government. I sobbed. Heartbroken.

I promise Mason, and my four grandchildren, that I will vote next week, and in November, and in 2020, and for as long as I live, for those who promote equality, justness, care of each other, and environmental/climate awakenedness. I will work toward and vote for, now and ever, the power of love to prevail by its powerful expression of the truth that we are all, everyone of us, created in the image of divinity, and this, our one, beautiful earth is home to us all and must be a welcoming, well-tended oasis on our common journey toward Home.

To the sobbing children taken from their parents, many of us hear you and your parents, and wholeheartedly commit to drying your tears, giving you, and thus all of us, a better, more just, welcoming world.
