Months of revelation. Systemic anti-black racism, acute heath care inequalities, a democracy in free fall, damaged science. A horrible six months that will likely get worse before it gets better. I can’t offer anything by way of new insights, wisdom, or consolation. Everything has been said. But we must not give up hope. I will continue to fight. These things are too important. My family, my friends, my colleagues, my university, my country, my world. Let the audacity of hope turn to the resolute of love and determination. Vote!
