Yes, that.

Personal sorrow is a trite thing. Let us think of our brothers and sisters whose lives just became forfeit. Let us think of our LGBT brothers and sisters, the equality of whom our president and the New York state legislature continue to deny. Let us think of the innocent Afghans and Pakistanis and young Americans who will pay for our imperial ambitions.

Let us consider a world without American war. Let us consider that world and let us act upon its promise. We will fight for peace, equality, and justice. If we can’t fight for that, then this generation is bankrupt and hopeless. The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.
