(Yes, I call myself an “old broad.” I consider it an honorable status.)

The future matters more than the present. The present matters more than the past.

Old white men, your power is the past. It no longer matters. Give it up.

Old white women, old women of color, old men of color, your chance at power is the past. It no longer matters. Give it up.

The future belongs to those who will live in it, those who will have to solve the problems we have created, or die trying. It belongs to our daughters and sons, our nephews and nieces, our grandchildren and students, the kids down the street and on the other side of the tracks.
