In memory of my mom, whom we are officially saying goodbye to this afternoon at a memorial service.
In the U.S. Senate this week, Senator Klobuchar called for Unanimous Consent to pass a resolution acknowledging that climate change is occurring and that it will continue to pose an ongoing risk. Senator James Inhofe objected to the resolution. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse offered this cogent, informed response.
Life is sometimes hard. This is in memory of my mother, Leona, who passed on last week. Mom, it turns out, there’s only love.
“We are fire and sometimes we are light
We are passions that sometimes are right
And we are brick, we are mortar, we are ashes tomorrow -
that is to say, there is only love,
that is to say, there is only love.”
