Where Do We Go From Here?

Games of Hope We Play in the Middle of Trump’s Night

The title is a line from a song by the Alan Parsons Project, Games People Play. It was haunting to me as a child, forecasting a future of middle age when the children are grown and gone, and “nobody gives us a damn.” But more importantly it is also the title of the last book of the great American Martin Luther King Junior. What is sad today, as I write on this holiday, this Martin Luther King Day, the 35th anniversary celebrating his life and legacy, is that there is little celebration. The top of the mountain feels a long way off.
