Shana Tova to the Activists; A Rosh Hashana Poem, inspired by a friend

Shana tova to the activists.

Shana tova to the fighters, the resisters.

Shana tova to those who worked their asses off last year to make sure the next year is a better one.

Shana tova to those who see a brighter horizon, who see greener grass.

Shana tova to organizers and the grassroots.

Shana tova to those cannot sit still, who cannot sit idly by, who take a stand when there’s a stand to be taken.

Shana tova to those who look to their children, who look to their parents, who look to their lovers and see a called to march in their faces.

Shana tova to those who pray with their feet and hands and their bodies and those who put them at risk for the cause.

Shana tova to the activists. To the fighters. To the resisters.
