May the Blue Wave of Democracy Lift Texas to Higher Ground

Texas is fixin’ to go blue y’all. Thought about a little piece I wrote, “Blooming Blue Texas” in September of 2019. With record turn out, in spite of a pandemic and obvious voter suppression, folks still let their voices soar by voting. May the blue wave of democracy lift Texas, and all of America to “Higher Ground.” Everything is bigger in Texas, as will be the Biden blue wave of votes for “the soul of America.”
