America’s Dark Days

“In these darkest hours of these truly dark days, America comes out like the sunshine comes up every morning. It comes out from the pulpit of that church yesterday where a victim’s mother speaks as eloquently and as meaningfully as she did about the death of her daughter — something I don’t think any of us can really comprehend as parents. It comes out when members of the American military issue statements in support of what this country is all about: Equality, lack of prejudice. America comes out when you see the business council saying: `This is just a bit too much for us.’ And they issue statements. It does not come out, unfortunately, in the words of the President of the United States. But the optimism about…the brightness of America (and) we’ve seen it displayed in the past 24 hours. It’s stronger and more powerful than anything that Donald Trump has said thus far,” explains Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the panel talks about the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, following the memorial service for Heather Heyer, the woman run down and killed by a Dodge Challenger with a neo-Nazi at the wheel.
