Saturday Open Thread | Al-Jazeera | The People vs America

The election of Donald Trump in November 2016 exposed a deep vein of distrust across the US, where millions have become disillusioned with a political and corporate elite out of touch with the sentiments of ordinary Americans. We explore the construction and mythology of the American Dream and uncover the reality of exclusion and denial. In this two-part series, we chart the history of post-Second World War America to uncover how race has dominated the political landscape and continues to shape American society.

    This evening I have been reading some words of wisdom by Dorothy Height.

    “Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.”
    ~Dorothy Height

    “If the time is not ripe, we have to ripen the time.”
    ~Dorothy Height

      The devastation is so extreme.

      May the Lord fill those affected with the strength they need now during their recovery efforts. I cannot begin to imagine the difficult, exhausting road ahead for all of the returning evacuees. May the Lord protect them and watch over them.

      So good to see so many people helping people.
