To all people of color, to Latinos and African Americans, to the refugees fleeing war and persecution, to immigrants from around the world,
To Muslims and Jews, to those of the Baha’i faith, to Hindus and others unnamed,
To all women. To our wives, our daughters, our sisters and our mothers,
To the disabled, the elderly, the poor and disadvantaged,
To the ongoing and future victims of human rights violations and justice denied,
To Earth and those many future generations who will suffer profoundly as avoidable climate change unfolds and permanently overheats our planet. To the millions of species lost,
I am sorry. We failed.
