Someday the textbooks will tell us about
the marriage equality struggle
and the war on terrorism.
They’ll tell us about Ebola and global warming,
the trials of the iGeneration,
and that time everyone thought the world was going to end.
And that other time.
And that other time…
Someday we’ll hear the true stories
of Palestine and Syria,
North Korea and Russia.
We’ll learn about the attack on a French magazine,
the survival of a girl shot for wanting an education,
Someday we’ll learn about where we went wrong
and how it all came down,
but more importantly,
we’ll learn about where we went right.
