A small boy leads the way


(Demonstrations outside Trump Tower after the American Presidential election result.)

Last evening, waiting in line at the drugstore, we could not avoid the rack of magazines, prominent among which was People magazine featuring a smiling President-elect Trump on the front cover. A small boy of colour picked up the magazine, opened it briefly and then put it back on the rack, face down.  I said, “Well done!” So did the other couple in the line.

A small but significant gesture by a young child, calling us all to action.
