Here is a storify of my Inauguration Day Twitter rant welcoming the new folks to the resistance.

Do the work that is before your hand to do.

There is enough work for everyone, and enough hands to get it all done eventually.

Well said indeed.

Thank you for this.

I have not faded.
I am not jaded.
I am not sated.

We are gentle, angry people, and we are signing for our lives.

Even a gentle voice may be heard if it is persistent enough.

Your magnificently strong women characters have helped me recover from two spinal surgeries. Sometimes, we need the vision of someone else to hold us up when we cannot find our own way. Since we're living in a time that seems perilously close to fictional, why not draw upon the brightest sparks that have ignited countless dreams?

I am so happy to have been of service to you.

Hearing that I helped helps me, in turn.

Here's my hand. Today, I'll pull you up.

Thank you for your voice.

Huh. Until I saw this comment, I thought that was only a local song. I had no idea of the history. Thanks for that.

That storify, and most particularly the last tweet, (all the more effective for how it was led up to), inspired me to write a thing: Stand, Hold Hands, and Sing.

This is why we have authors, not to put words into our mouths, but to put our thoughts into the words that mean what we struggle to articulate. Amen, sister, Amen.

Some thoughts come to mind. Mohandas Gandhi, the Kent State chant: "The Whole World's Watching," Zola's "J'Accuse"

Thank you so much for this. They were words that I very much needed to hear when I first read them. And I came back tonight to read them again.
