I made this on January 6, 2021 in celebration of the confirmed win in Georgia. Little did I know that while filming it an insurgence was breaking out in the capitol. After catching the news and watching in shock, I shelved it and sat on it for the last 2 days. I believe that People Have the Power. But that rallying cry is a double-edged sword and also a bitter pill to swallow. Like Patti sings, I believe we have the power to “wrestle the world from fools” like I feel with the recent election in Georgia. But, those terrorists storming the capitol thought that they too had the power and that their “union” could “turn the world around” and overturn what they believed was a fraudulent election. People have the power, yes. But how do we wield that power and what are we unifying for? 74 million fellow citizens believed that this fool of a con man was our country’s best choice as a leader. I can never forget that. Eyes wide open.
