How do you grieve for something you’ve always known was there and is no longer. For make no mistake. In its place is something rank, rotten, and speaking with a seemingly forked, barely recognizable tongue. It spews venom—the venom of divisiveness, homophobia, misogyny, racism, and xenophobia. And, yes, ignorance. It’s a voice that has forgotten or never learned the plain-spoken eloquence of what it means to be America the Beautiful, the land that we loved.
