I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

More Springsteen

"In 71 years on the planet, I haven’t seen anything like this past year: The Bill of Rights and the Constitution have been so bludgeoned and disrespected that I’m frightened for us. But I still cling, maybe naively, to that beautiful quote by Dr. King that says, ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.’ Now, he neglected to mention that it does an awful lot of zigging and zagging along the way. And oh my God, have we zagged, but I’m still stubborn, and I’ve lived long enough to see that that arc doesn’t bend on its own. To reach its goal, it takes all of us leaning on it and pushing it in the right direction."
