This poem was written for and performed at the Jewish and Proud! Solano County Standing Together demonstration in Fairfield, California on January 6, 2020.
Together We Stand by D.L. Lang
As Jews we have survived centuries of oppression.
This time shall be no different!
No matter who the enemy,
we shall fight to be Jewish and free!
We stand in solidarity with all peoples in this quest
to live in a world free of such deadly hatred!
We shall work to repair this world,
so that all may know true peace,
and the blessings it shall bring.
We stand together now as our forebears did,
and we shall not fear!
