The title of this piece, ‘More Power to Miss Omar’, should be elaborated upon, to include all the voices rising up, amidst the new class of elected individuals, of which we could use many more, and hopefully will see in ever increasing numbers.
It’s difficult to say what is most impressive about her and those like her . . . the intelligent and diplomatic articulation of issues . . . the courage to speak out . . . the willingness to be a true human being, among the throng of all those who seem to have forgotten what that means, to themselves and all of us on this planet. Perhaps, indeed, it is the total of these that impresses and inspires.
One can only hope there are many to follow her, and their, example as we continue the struggle.
