The Day After

October 28, 2018

First they came for the Muslims and I was not a Muslim. But I said, “Not on my watch!”

Then they came for the undocumented, and my grandfathers were undocumented. And I said, “Refugees make America great.”

Then they came for trans and nonbinary people. And I said, “We are all created in God’s image, no exceptions!”

And then they came for women survivors of assault. And I said, “Are you friggin kidding?”

And they have been coming since before we were a nation for indigenous and black people. And I haven’t said enough.

And then they came for Jews. I am a Jew.

And friends of different faiths and races and sexual and gender identities stood with me and said, “We will outlive them!”
