and I'm borrowing from NLOGAM:
Just like when Longfellow wrote Paul Revere’s Ride, we are facing a time of danger. The danger is not just from COVID-19. The more critical
danger is that civil liberties are being trampled upon by public
officials with their proclamations, emergency orders, etc. Whether it is
police in Greenville, Mississippi interfering with a drive-in church,
police in Raleigh saying people don’t have the right to assemble even if
keeping their social distance, or Gov. Baker’s order on gun stores, the
First and Second Amendments are being spit upon by small men with big
egos and a misguided sense of their own importance.
It is time for that to stop.
