I deeply mourn Heather Heyer. To me, she represents my generation’s finest aspirations. It isn’t our tech that makes us special. So many of my friends, my cohorts, my college classmates, have big hearts with room enough for all brothers and sisters in this American democracy and everywhere else on this blue and verdant Earth. They walk the streets and protest wrong when they see it. The know every corner of the issues. Me and my cohorts–we came of age after the Cold War, after Vietnam, after Watergate. We knew no limits as children. We survived 9/11 and didn’t let that diminish our capacity for love and learning. This White House is powerful. But we’re not done yet. Not nearly. Our leaders are just emerging. Heyer’s legacy will live on in those leaders’ multitudes of successes.
