That’s a pretty popular and powerful word in the 21st century. It got a president or 2 elected, it inspired the Civil Rights movement, and it’s something I get way too much of at the Farmer’s Market (seriously, make those peas an even $2, I don’t need the 2 cents back for $1.98 peas).
It’s a sensation I think we all feel, but rarely ever take the time to put into words. It’s a combination of dread and excitement that flickers through our emotions like binary code, off and on, positive and negative. Sometimes one emotion flickers more proudly than the other, but they are always both there.
