The battle is over , but the war goes on…
The biggest thanks goes to the ordinary people, who stood in lines for hours during a deadly pandemic, or negotiated on-line voting for the first time, those who kept the faith through the humble act of counting; and the Black, Muslim, Indigenous, Chicano, and Mexican peoples of the United States, whose citizenship has come through so many trials by fire…even the media showed some restraint.

It’s a good day to let out our collective breath. Many people must be celebrating this day, knowing that four more years of the festering cheeto are out of the picture. But not a time to rest on the laurels of this election. Now the soil has been aerated, as it were, planting the seeds of another world, is possible. Let’s hope the people of the United States are up to what could be a pivotal moment in their history. In the meantime, let’s enjoy this moment repudiating violent misogyny, open nepotism, and white power!
If you sang the song, The way it was written And you march along, To the beat of the drum Someday soon, you gonna wake up singin' Battle is over, but the war goes on Everybody plays follow the leader What if the leader has a gun Remember when you jumped, To the 8 o'clock whistle Battle is over, but the war goes on You close your eyes when you hear the thunder Cry in the rain And smile in the sun Who do you fool, but me and you brother? The battle is over, but the war goes on If talk was money, you'd be a millionaire If thoughts could kill, there'd be no one here So many thinkin' evil and talkin' jive But its in only true love, this old world can stay alive The battle is over, but the war goes on The battle is over, but the war goes on The battle is over, but the war goes on
