We all need to speak up and out! Now.

There is an excellent piece today by John Cassidy in the New Yorker about the Trump v. Clinton landscape. Piece is thoughtful and I agree with most of it but the last line is wrong. Way wrong.

It says: “Unless something very unexpected happens, it will be up to Hillary Clinton to keep him [Trump] out of the White House.” No — it is up to all of us who care about our nation and its values to speak up and out against a candidate who spews racism and sexism and encourages and incites violence. Our voices need to be heard too. The responsibility for the betterment of our nation rests on all of our shoulders, not just Hillary’s.

Here is link to piece in its entirety. http://bit.ly/1YZtGdW
