Sydney – December 2014

In the days and months and years to come,

could we look back on this day as a tipping point?

That was the day,

we will say in our dotage,

when political creeds stopped holding us hostage.

That was the month,

we will say to our children,

when stories of courage began to be written.

That was the year

when we noticed the shift,

sustained and en masse, not a meaningless drift.

What mountains we moved with this dogged persistence,

when love replaced fear and compassion indifference.

===================

We will ride with you.

We will sit with you.

We will stand with you.

In the days and months and years to come,

could we?
