Tonight Van Jones received an NAACP Image Award.
Van gave some great remarks in acceptance that were humorous, inspiring and compassionate.
In conclusion, he addressed some words to Glenn Beck, saying something like:
‘To Mr. Glenn Beck. I see you. I love you, brother, and there’s nothing you can do about it . I love you, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Let’s be one country. Let’s get the job done.’
Interestingly enough, just last night someone left a comment on this website that said:
"GET REAL YOU LIBERAL MORON ,VAN JONES SUCKS SO DO YOU"
Not exactly an edifying contribution to our national discussion, and somehow pathetic in its use of ALL CAPS, as if that makes a lie into a truth.
It was nice to be reminded by Van tonight that we can always choose to love, no matter what. May we continue to embody love and compassion for everyone. Our enemies are not each other, but rather our own hatred, fear, and delusion.
‘Let’s be one country’ indeed.
