I was honored to pray at the #DemocraticConvention last week. Originally I thought the prayer could be 2 minutes (that was my mistake: I misunderstood) but it needed to be under 40 seconds, since it was 1 of 3 Benedictions. I thought you might like to see the original prayer. Image
My goal was to write a prayer that was neither Republican nor Democrat but Catholic, not partisan but religious, which I could pray at either convention and, more importantly, which would remind listeners that all life is sacred.
The intentions were listed not in order of importance, but according to the length of lines, so that it would move from the longest intentions and end with the shortest ones. That seemed to sound the best. Of course in the end some of the intentions were edited out for time.

#JoeBiden alla #DemocraticConvention, thread e qui il discorso/1
Un discorso volto a convincere e rassicurare, che parla soprattutto alla working/middle class bianca. E per questo, pur parlando di futuro e cose da fare, ha degli elementi di promessa di ritorno al passato (come il messaggio di Trump 2016)/2
Se la campagna Trump da mesi racconta Biden come sleepy Joe, un rimbambito, il discorso di ieri ha mostrato un candidato anziano ma in ottima forma/3

No discurso em que aceitou a nomeação como democrata à presidência dos EUA, Joe Biden buscou se apresentar como contraponto ao Trump, com ênfase em quatro grandes crises: pandemia, economia, desigualdades raciais e mudanças climáticas #DemocraticConvention Image
Biden pintou um quadro sombrio dos EUA sob Trump: “temporada de escuridão”. Prometeu trabalhar para reduzir as divisões. Fez acenos a eleitores republicanos, mas ressaltou também pautas caras à base democrata, a mais importante delas a proposta de taxar grandes empresas.
O ex-VP traçou um plano de reconstrução econômica que lembra o New Deal Do pós-depressão de 29, com foco em investimentos em infraestrutura e na retomada do mercado de trabalho. "Emprego não é só sobre o contracheque, é uma questão de dignidade", afirmou.

O Biden citar as mudanças climáticas como uma das quatro crises existenciais de nosso tempo (ao lado da sanitária, da econômica e da racial) é mais um atestado de como a política ambiental se incorporou ao mainstream da plataforma democrata.
Biden prometendo manter a cadeia produtiva de materiais de saúde nos EUA para o país não ter que ficar dependente de adversários internacionais, como a China. Essa poderia ser facilmente uma promessa republicana #DemocraticConvention2020
Estou realmente surpreso com a posição central das mudanças climáticas no discurso do Biden. Tema já foi citado pelo menos três vezes #DemocraticConvention

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms: “People often think they can't make a difference like our Civil Rights icons, but every person in the movement mattered—those who made the sandwiches, swept the church floors, stuffed the envelopes. They, too, changed America.” #DemConvention Image
An absolutely beautiful tribute to John Lewis with @johnlegend and @common. #DemConvention #DemocraticConvention ImageImage

The president's suggestion that you need an ID to "get into" the convention is confusing because the convention is virtual and people are watching from their homes with TVs and computers and phones and maybe an iPad....
I am not sure what the president is talking about.
So either the president is unaware the convention is virtual.
Or his Twitter handler is unaware.
Or it is an attempt to confuse those who dont know what is truth from fiction.

1/ There have been so many times over the past months that doctors like myself have been lambasted for speaking up in “politics”— if only you realized that *politics* is why we have failed to stop #covid19; why over 170k Americans are dead in this country.

2/ We have enough public health expertise, enough medical talent, enough $$, enough manufacturing capacity, enough great ideas to stop this epidemic; what we lack is the leadership to actually bring those moving parts together to create a real response. #DemocraticConvention
3/ Ultimately, for myself and other doctors who were on the frontlines; who took care of patients that couldn’t breathe; families that were destroyed within hours— literally— this is not about politicians, this is not about right v left; this is about real leadership & real lives

“I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously. But he never did.” @BarackObama speaks the truth. #DemConvention Image
"And the consequences of that failure are severe: 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before.” #Obama on #Covid_19 and more
“Over eight years, Joe was the last one in the room whenever I faced a big decision. He made me a better president. He’s got the character and the experience to make us a better country.”

We're ready for it, @BarackObama. #DNCConvention #DemocraticConvention Image

📺 @GabbyGiffords just addressed the #DemocraticConvention. She's speaking not just about gun safety, but drawing a powerful metaphor b/w her nearly decade-long recovery and the fight against gun violence: One more step, one more word. One more law, one less shooting. 1/
.@GabbyGiffords continues her recovery. This is her longest speech since being shot and is the product of countless hours of practice. She says, "I found one word & then I found another... America needs us all to speak out, even when you have to fight to find the words." 2/
“Words once came easily, today I struggle to speak, but I have not lost my voice." - @GabbyGiffords 🎙️

Thread sulla seconda giornata della #DemocraticConvention. Se si escludono #AOC, Stacey Abrams e il coro di giovani eletti che legge il keynote speech, ieri è stato il giorno del passato e della rassicurazione. Vediamo cosa significa (la soluzione in fondo al thread) /1
#Clinton ha demolito Trump da par suo (è sempre stato un grande oratore, anche quando non parla da un podio) e tranquillizzato sui piani di Biden: "Build Back Better" contro "Blame, Bully e Belittle" (biasimare, bullizzare, sminuire) di Trump/2
#CindyMcCain, vedova di John, ricorda l'amicizia tra i due. Un modo per segnalare la volontà di Biden di tornare a un clima politico decente dopo un deterioramento progressivo che tocca l'apice con Trump. Allo stato una "mission impossible"/3

Now for the English teacher section of the evening! #DemocraticConvention
She’s right about the floors, BTW; it’s a multiple person process, so the summer waxing didn’t happen everywhere it usually would this summer.
(And this really really bothers custodial and facilities folks. Shiny school floors is part of what summer is about. Another little loss alongside so many big ones)

Pierre Poilievre is the most repugnant human in #Canada.

Watching the #DemocraticConvention gives me hope.

Time to put these Cons and Republicans into the dustbin of history.

ENOUGH with the hate, division and negativity!

The #CPC lays out it's plan to get #Canada's economy back on track after #Covid19!

...Oh, sorry. It's just #PigeonPierre ranting and raving about bullshit again.

#cdnpoli #PissOffPierre Image
#PigeonPierre is proud of his collection and is doing a Liddle' "show and tell" for all of us!

He wants the "5000 documents" to be #Canada's "But her emails!" - or, at least, Harper does.

La pandemia estuvo muy presente en el
#DemocraticConvention de esta noche. Pero el mensaje más fuerte no lo dio un virologo ni un médico ni un enfermero, sino @kdurquiza, quien perdió a su padre (65) por la #COVID19 (+)
"Su única condición preexistente fue confiar en Donald Trump", dijo durante el #DemocraticConvention y señaló que cuando vote por Joe Biden, lo hará por su padre.
En su cuenta de Twitter, la joven dijo que, en memoria a su padre, lanzó @MarkedByCovid para que la gente pueda compartir sus historias y pueda pedir responsabilidad a los políticos.
