This is a must-watch.
This could have been me. Along with snakes, needles (got my first COVID-19 shot yesterday!), dinner parties, Republican Congresses, and DMT machine elves riding murder hornets up me windy bum, public speaking is one of my greatest fears. If I could live permanently in a bunker and still snag all the Costco food samples every weekend, I might just do that. So I get how important this simple act of compassion is.
In this brief clip, Kamala Harris showed us that we’re all human, and that we’re all in this together as a country. Think Donald Trump would have reached out like this with his oleaginous Vienna sausage fingers? Not in a million years.
This is a small gesture, but it’s hard to overstate how good these kinds of moments make me feel these days. Compassion is back, and I can only hope it stays put for another eight years … at least.
