My peeps

Had a little heartwarming moment on Sunday. I was in a different town, visiting my mother-in-law, so I popped into the local UU church for Sunday services.

At the end of the service, the minister opened up the floor for folks to share their thoughts on immigration. Criss-crossing the room, people volunteered their thoughts. Most were well thought out and articulated; all were heartfelt.

Sitting there, listening to their ideas, I felt this warm glow -- the knowledge that I could walk into any UU church and find a similar experience. People sharing their ideas. People who want to help make the world better.

As the kids say, "These are my peeps." This is my tribe.
