A letter to all my friends:\

\n\

Please message me. Please message me \if you’re an immigrant, LGBT, Muslim, or Jewish\. Message me if you’re Mexican-American, African-American, or Asian. If you come from Southeast Asia please message me. If you’re Pakistani, Jamaican, Dominican, Colombian, Puerto Rican, French, Russian, Serbian, or Brazilian.\

\n\

If you’re a woman and \you’re scared about what America has always been, has become, or is becoming\, please reach out. If you’re a man and you’re scared, please reach out. If you fall somewhere in between, the offer still stands. If you have children and you’re worried about sending them off to school please let me know.\

\n\

And if you’re poor and white and feel the country and the system has screwed you over (because it has); if you’re scared and lonely and feel alone and vulnerable; if you feel this country, this whole system, \hasn’t served you, hasn’t honored its trust with you\, my door is open.\

\n\

If you voted for Trump, don’t unfriend me on Facebook. I don’t want that. Message me instead. Come over instead.\

\n\

I will cook. I will clean. I’ll even help you do your laundry. We will talk. We’ll laugh. You can relax here. You are safe here. You won’t be judged. You can be you. I don’t know how else to say it, but this isn’t a house of hatred.\

\n\

A few words about the house rules.\

\n\

This house is a family home. It’s modest. I live here with my three children and my girlfriend. They are curious, brilliant, funny human beings. I moved here after a bitter divorce a couple of years ago. I’ve not been here long. But from the moment I stepped through the door (with boxes and bins and bags and a fair dose of hopelessness) I knew that I wanted this house to be a place that sheltered me and my children.\

\n\

I wanted shelter, in a broad sense. A home that was warm and well-lit and safe. But it was empty when I moved in, and so as exhausted and world-weary and fight-weary as I was, I knew that if I wanted my children to have shelter we would have to build it together.\

\n\

There are rules, of course. No words are off-limits. The children have free run of the English language (\and any other\), even its more colorful bits. But they can’t use those words to hurt each other or anyone else, and they have to remember that out in the rest of the world other people might not understand our relationship with language.\

\n\

Another rule is that we all work. My work and their work is different of course. I write and teach and cook and clean and do the laundry and love and protect them. Their work is to learn, to play, to invent, to pick up after themselves, and to help. And as long as we all do our work we get to read and wrestle and draw and live. This is how \we have built our shelter\.\

\n\

Every morning before we head out the door we recite a creed. We all take turns leading it. It goes something like this:\

\n\
\

\“I am brave. I am smart. I am strong. I am funny. I respect all of Creation. I respect myself. And my job is to help other people.” (Though the children have amended this to include the cat and a mouse who also live with us.)\\

\
\n\

The same rules apply to everyone who walks through my door.\

\n\

It might do to add a few words about the family you will be visiting.\

\n\

My mother is American Indian — and we are Ojibwe from the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. My father, who passed away in January at the age of 90, was an Austrian Jew. He survived the Holocaust by finding refuge in America after a long, harrowing journey. Most of his family, our family, wasn’t so lucky: they died at Mauthausen and Dachau.\

\n\

My father loved America for the simple reason that it saved his life. He loved it so much he wouldn’t let it fail, he wouldn’t let it be the worst version of itself. And so he spent his life fighting for justice and equal rights and Indian rights. He fought Joe McCarthy and he fought the worst expressions of capitalism.\

\n\

He could have been angry. He could have seethed. He could have been a hater. But he wasn’t. He was principled and caring. In that way he tried to raise us and shelter us. And in that I way I try to raise my children.\

\n\

This is how my home works. And \this is how I want our country to work, too\. So I don’t want people who supported Trump to unfriend me, and I won’t unfriend you.\

\n\

I want you to come over for dinner. I mean it. If you’re poor and white and struggling and voted for Trump… when he lets you down, I will be here and I’ll try to help you. This shelter is for you, too. The election was only settled yesterday, and I’m trying to get my head around it.\

\n\

Once I do I will pick a day each month and put out the call. Come over. Eat. Relax. No one will be judged. No one will be hated. My door is open and I’ll provide shelter.\

I’ve been offline for a while, stressing over the elections — and apparently I am not alone. But the storm and fury of the election didn’t just cause us all to be stressed. One could argue that the brain’s stress response played a very large role in causing that storm and fury.\

\n\

In 1881, in his book \\American Nervousness: Its Causes and Consequences\\, George M. Beard said:\

\n\
\

\“The chief and primary cause of …[the] very rapid increase of nervousness is modern civilization, which is distinguished from the ancient by these five characteristics: steampower, the periodical press, the telegraph, the sciences, and the mental activity of women.”\\

\
\n\

Sound familiar? Just substitute the words “automation,” “the internet,” “the media,” and “cultural change” for some of Beard’s words, and we see that nothing has changed in over a century. Had my father been alive, he would have said:\

\n\
\

\“Plus ça change, plus ça rest la meme chose”\ — “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”\

\
\n\

So why is this? The brain’s stress response is a finely tuned instrument, set to trigger at the slightest change in the environment. Change and novelty are very potent stressors for all animals, even down to the lowliest fruit fly. \This is a good thing\, as without that stress response, when faced with a danger in a new environment, we would not have the energy to fight or flee; we would not survive.\

\n\

But we are living in an age of unprecedented change — change that is present, or feared in the future; change in our immediate surroundings, or distant from us; change that we cannot escape because it looms large through the internet. There is war and terrorism. There are jobs lost through automation — jobs that will never be replaced because machines and robots are doing them now. There is social change, with the influx of immigrants and clashes of cultures. There is poverty, violence and discrimination. And yes, the “mental activity of women” apparently \continues to cause stress for some\.\

\n\

What does this have to do with the election? People said they wanted change, but what the science of stress tells us is that what they were really seeking was familiarity with an older, simpler time. Familiarity is an effective way of reducing the stress of novelty and change. Of course we all long for a simpler time, when we imagine that none of these stressors existed, or at least that they were there in smaller amounts.\

\n\

So it is natural to search for a way to go back in time, to when the landscape of work and the people around were familiar. It is natural, too, to \place all our hopes on someone\ who promises to take us there. When Walt Disney designed his theme parks in the 1950s, he designed a Main Street to reflect the Main Street of his childhood. But if you look at pictures of his hometown’s Main Street, it didn’t look at all like Disneyland. There were certainly no pretty awnings and definitely no castle. It was the town he had dreamed of — a place that existed only in his imagination.\

\n\

One very primal, almost reflexive way to lower the stress response is to act on it — express it, vocalize it, attack the perceived trigger, to try to get rid of it. That’s the “fight” part of the fight-or-flight response. This approach was unfortunately all too rampant in the lead-up to this election. But while this may feel good to the doer in the moment, it is counter-productive in the longer term. It creates a \vicious cycle that amplifies stress\, especially if the perceived trigger fights back. And the stress is amplified even more if those attacks are launched relentlessly on a massive, society-wide scale, as they were throughout the election period.\

\n\

But there are better ways of reducing stress, ways that don’t hurt others and ourselves, and which do ultimately get the desired result — \a place of safety and comfort for all\. How stressed one feels depends on the balance between the load of stress and the control we have over that stress. If you are in a high-demand, high-control situation, you feel stimulated — think of a pilot flying an airplane. In a high-demand, low-control situation, you feel stressed — that’s the rest of us in the back of the plane when it gets bumpy.\

\n\

So, if the election results are making you stressed, one way to productively manage that stress is to do something to take control. Of course, you can never really be in control. But you can fool your brain into thinking that you have some control, and that will lower your stress response.\

\n\

I have felt this way at a few critical times in my life when events so monumental stopped me dead in my tracks. September 11 was one. When faced with stressful events that you can’t change, you can resolve to do whatever you can in your own sphere of expertise, to take control. If you are a teacher, teach; a builder, build; a driver, drive; a cook, cook; a healer, heal. That will give you a sense of control over the situation and doing so will lower that feeling of stress. I write and do medical research. I am already feeling less stressed just writing this, so thank you, dear readers, for helping me out!\

\n\

One even better way to lower your stress response is to do those things that you do best, and do them for others. If enough of us apply our own special talents to doing good, then perhaps the cumulative good will have a chance of canceling out the bad, while lowering our collective stress in the process.\

\n\

That may sound naïve, but it works. Love and compassion are actually more \effective ways to counter the brain’s stress response\, by activating all those positive brain hormones, nerve chemicals, and brain pathways, than is trying hard to reduce stress. When I asked the Dalai Lama whether he uses meditation to reduce stress, he shook his head. “Stress,” he said, was not a word in the Buddhist tradition. When I asked why, then, does he meditate, he answered, compassion — love. It’s that simple.\

The Dalai Lama is not the only spiritual leader who has preached this gospel. Having \compassion for people on both sides\, each struggling with their own stresses — change, job loss, new culture, loss of home or homeland, fear, discrimination, violence, poverty, and on and on — is one of the best ways to lower your stress response. By doing so, hopefully we will all find a new way forward, to work together to find solutions on common ground, to build instead of to tear down, and to do it together, with respect for the fears and stresses that motivate us all. That is what will make this country truly great again.\

\n\

Maybe then we can all have our castles at the end of Main Street. After all, the United States was founded on these principles — that we all have certain inalienable rights, and these include the pursuit of Happiness.\

However small my “public” might be, it’s been hard to be a public person this week and last. I’m, quite frankly, crushed by the election results, grieving and reading and talking and looking into my daughters’ eyes and \trying to make sense of it all\. So rather than offer you 750 words or so of pat answers or even half-digested insights, this week, I offer you questions. These are just some of the ones I’m asking. What are yours?\

\n\

How can I investigate \where people hurt\ without condoning their bigotry?\

\n\

Is it unsafe to take the “long view”? Unsafe for whom?\

\n\

Why don’t we attribute the appropriate weight to moral recklessness versus strategic miscalculation?\

\n\

Why don’t we expect more integrity from our leaders? And why don’t we better understand what compromise leaders with integrity have to make?\

\n\

What is \the nature of the bubble\ I live in — both geographic and online? How can I burst it at every opportunity?\

\n\

What is the wisest, most powerful white counterforce to white supremacy? What is the new language for making a moral whiteness possible?\

\n\

How can we counter the internet trolls and racists and sexists and xenophobes and confused teenagers who have been \empowered to take hateful action\ because of Trump’s behavior?\

\n\

Will this fear and hatred inevitably die with its carriers? Or will their \children\, ever fewer in number, become even more dangerous?\

\n\

Who are the new allies to anti-racist, anti-sexist work who have been woken up through this election result, and how do we pull them into collective action?\

\n\

Who is he really? Does he even know?\

\n\

What do I really know about how government works? How can I learn more in the context of a busy life?\

\n\

Should we move back to \the Midwest\, where we are from? How can white people hold one another accountable across geographic distance?\

\n\

How could we have done this to our babies and our elders?\

\n\

How can we \get rid of the Electoral College\?\

\n\

How do I counter the existential dread that has taken root in my body?\

\n\

What does it look like to create safer spaces for my people to gather and process what they’re thinking and feeling, and the kind of action they want to take now?\

\n\

How can storytelling heal this country and what are its limitations? What other tools do we have?\

\n\

Who are the people in my own life who might have voted for him, and how can I \create constructive conversations\ with them about why?\

\n\

How could \53 percent\ of white women vote for him? What does this indicate about what they expect from men?\

\n\

How can we honor Hillary Clinton’s tireless courage?\

\n\

What new institutions and \cultural practices\ do we need to create so people feel less isolated, angry, and hateful?\

\n\

How can we improve public education so people have more critical thinking skills?\

\n\

What role did \journalism place in creating the soil for his win\ and how can we return to a practice of delivering regionally-contextualized, reliable information to people who need it most?\

\n\

How could more solutions-based coverage make the electorate smarter and more hopeful?\

\n\

How can I personally \play a role\ in making a Trump presidency as non-harming as possible? What are the small wins amidst this larger loss?\

\n\

In what ways will this reality check unleash a new era of coalition-building on behalf of human dignity?\

We had a chance to host Khizr Khan and Ghazala Khan at \my university,\ Duke, this past week. Like most of America, I was introduced to this beautiful dignified couple, who had lost their son in the Iraq War, at last year’s \Democratic National Convention.\ In that unforgettable moment, Khizr pulled a copy of the constitution from his pocket, and waved it, asking if then candidate Trump had actually read the document.\

\n\

We would see Khizr Khan again, in a \campaign ad\ that more directly referenced their enormous, unbearable sacrifice, losing their son, Captain Humayun Khan.\

\n\
\

\“He saved everyone in his unit.
 Only one American soldier died.
 My son was Captain Humayun Khan.”\\

\
\n\

A tearful Khizr asked Trump: “Would my son have a place in your America?” There was an \undeniable poignancy to this grieving father\, one who had sacrificed everything and still wanted to belong to America. The ad was so powerful, and for a while it looked like an immigrant, brown, accented Pakistani-American Muslim father may go down in history as the unexpected cultural icon who brought down Donald Trump.\

\n\

\\\\

\n\

It turns out history has a bigger plan for Khizr and Ghazala Khan.\

\n\

When we invited them to \Duke’s Islamic Studies Center\ for our annual lecture, I was unsure of what to expect. Would it be a repeat of the DNC convention? Turns out that Khizr and Ghazala have been on the road, almost unceasingly, since that convention. I think Khizr mentioned that they have already given 106 speeches since then.\

\n\

Most human beings would crumble under the tragedy of losing a child. Or, for a select few, it can take a different turn. Sometimes a heart breaks. And sometimes a heart opens up. Khizr and Ghazala decided to take their heartache, and have it open up their heart. In the words of \Hamilton\, they have learned to \live with the unimaginable\.\

\n\

Yes, this is an immigrant story. It is the story of a couple who moved to the United States, \another immigrant comin’ from the bottom\. It is a parental story, of parents who have had to live with the pain of losing a son. It is a Muslim story, of a couple whose faith continues to nurture their hearts. It is also a deeply American story. It is one of the most remarkable truths about America, that those who are most marginalized, most systematically and structurally hated upon, get to stand up and be the moral compass of the society. It is African Americans, Jews, Hispanics, Native Americans, and now Muslims who get to remind us of the best that we can be, and must become.\

\n\

In introducing Khizr, I pointed out how the Khan family’s suffering reminded me of the suffering of Mamie Till, whose 14-year old son Emmett Till was brutally and savagely killed in the South allegedly for having whistled at a white woman. When Mamie held Emmett’s funeral in Roberts Temple Church of God in Christ in Chicago, she insisted on having an open casket funeral so that the whole world could see her suffering. Yet she insisted that she would not give in to hatred, and would dedicate herself to a lifetime struggle to speak out for justice.\

\n\

I don’t equate these episodes. Mamie came out of a multi-century long experience of slavery, decades of Jim Crow, and a \despicable epidemic\ of lynching all over the American South. But there is something analogous that Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who could be forgiven for sinking into an unbearable pain of losing their son in a war that many see as unjustified, immoral, and illegal, instead began by introducing themselves as a “patriotic, immigrant Americans… who happen to be Muslim.”\

\n\

One of Khizr’s favorite phrases is “hearten.” He describes what he does as \heartening\ people. We have almost lost this beautiful word from the English language. Ironically, the opposite phrase is with us. The root of “cour” (heart) in words like “encourage,” “discourage” is with us. We speak of being dis\cour\aged so often. Dis-heartened. Khizr talks about heartening each other, particularly those who need some encouragement.\

\n\

He heartens me, this humble, beautiful, grieving man. He speaks of a \hole in his heart\ that will never be filled. His wife, Ghazala, says softly that she does not offer talks in public because she’s afraid that a mere glimpse of her son’s picture might make her break out in tears, violating the dignity of the moment. Yet they continue to have faith in an America yet to come.\

\n\

Khizr speaks approvingly of the \“city on the hill”\ that Reagan spoke of:\

\n\

\“I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.”\\

\
\n\

I remember Khizr’s voice shaking when he spoke of this “wind-swept, God-blessed” America. He still speaks of a “blessed America.” And when I asked him what makes him look at America as this blessed nation, as this “greatest country in the world” (which he sees America as), with little hesitation he says: the rule of law. He considers constitutional amendments as “dignities,” as blessed and beautiful as lines of scripture.\

\n\

I confess that these days, all too often, I don’t see America in this light. I no longer see us as the greatest nation on Earth, if I ever did. Nor am I sure that in reality we have equal protection under the law. And I know that Khizr is far too perceptive of a man to not see the ways that we fall short. Rather, he speaks of “the America that I know.” He sees us, the American experiment, not merely as what we are, but as \what we might yet become\. Like Langston Hughes, Khizr Khan speaks of an America that will be. An America that should be, and has yet to be.\

\n\

In these days of bombastic nonsense, how lovely to see a beautiful humble human being who hangs on to the power of goodness, the authority of equal treatment under the law, and faith in an America to come.\

\n\

Mr. Khizr Khan and Mrs. Ghazala Khan, you hearten me.\

\n\

You hearten America.\

The day after the 2016 presidential election, I happened to be speaking at a conference in New Orleans, one of the bluest cities in the South. While wandering the working art studios in the Bourbon Street area, I encountered a local sculptor who, upon hearing that I teach peace and justice studies at Duke Divinity School, burst into zealous tears. Her collar soggy with snot and runny mascara, she articulated the disillusionment that many New Orleanians felt in the aftermath of the President Trump’s election.\

\n\

“This is so devastating,” she lamented.\

\n\
\

\“Is there any hope? Where is God in the midst of this?”\\

\
\n\

Her sorrow didn’t surprise me; after all, over \80 percent of New Orleans’ voters\ chose Hillary Clinton. However, her difficulty in finding hope and God in the midst of such devastation is one that struck me as both distinctly human and distinctly privileged.\

\n\

Indeed, as I’ve traveled the U.S. since the election, I’ve witnessed similar sentiments among privileged people (e.g., white and/or middle-class people). I honor the humanity in their vulnerable and sincere questioning. I also believe it is worth pointing out that privileged people’s immediate and enduring theological responses to the election have been decidedly less hopeful than those of people who identify with oppressed groups. This suggests to me that the difficulty in finding hope and God in the midst of devastation has deep roots in many privileged people’s theology.\

\n\

The privileged life is all about transcendence, living a life that lies beyond the limits of \ordinary experience\. It’s about avoiding, escaping, or anesthetizing systemic/societal pain. It is quite effective as a system of transcendence in that most privileged people are deeply disconnected from the ordinary experience of many.\

\n\

In 2017, a woman of color regularly faces food insecurity, violence, and/or housing instability. This is the norm. Since privileged people have agency and mobility, we can typically choose which neighborhoods we want to live in, \which schools to send our children to\, and which churches to attend. Most privileged people make choices that shield them from the realities of those who are excluded from such stable, safe, and prosperous communities. Intentionally or not, when privileged people choose to participate in economically- and racially-stratified neighborhoods, schools, and spiritual communities, \they isolate themselves from the majority of people in their region\ who experience systemic oppression.\

\n\

Given that transcendence is central to the privileged experience, it’s not surprising that many spiritual practices that are common among privileged people support a theology of transcendence, a belief that God lies beyond, not within, the limits of ordinary experience.\

\n\

I recently attended a silent meditation retreat in which we spent all day alternating between walking and sitting meditation. Over course of the week-long retreat, we concluded our daily meditation practice by watching hundreds of chimney swallows gracefully circle the sky and eventually acrobatically swoop into the retreat center’s brick chimney for rest. The meditation teachers invited us to allow the “liturgy of the chimney swallows to wash over us,” and the act of watching this stunning natural theater was coined the “swallow meditation,” thus designating it a distinctly spiritual activity on par with the walking and sitting meditation that we had done all day.\

\n\

I absolutely loved the swallow meditation and found it to be deeply edifying. And yet, as the only person of color at the retreat, I wondered whether a focused, curious meditation on the devastating effects of environmental racism in predominantly black and brown neighborhoods would have also been designated a spiritual activity. I’ve never been to a meditation retreat that included a “contaminated water meditation.”\

\n\

Turning our attention toward systemic pain is not something we typically associate with spiritual nourishment and liberation, but what if it is? What if we can’t truly experience the hope of the Divine until we are able to \experience the Divine in the most hopeless situations\?\

\n\

Throughout human history, the oppressed peoples of the world have, out of necessity, intentionally turned their focus on God in the midst of the most painful experiences.\

\n\

Within the Christian tradition it is taught that Mary conceived of the Magnificat while living in dire circumstances as a Jew under Roman occupation, further endangered by her status as an unmarried pregnant woman of color. In her song, she articulates a theology of immanence, the belief that the God of hope is precisely to be found \in the midst of uncertainty and distress\.\

\n\

\Mary’s theology of immanence\ has three parts. First, she affirms that God has graced her particular situation, that God is by her side as she experiences oppression in her “lowly” social location:\

\n\
\

\“My soul proclaims your greatness, O God,\\

\n\

\and my spirit rejoices in you, my savior.\\

\n\

\For you have looked with favor\\

\n\

\upon your lowly servant,\\

\n\

\and from this day forward\\

\n\

\all generations will call me blessed.\\

\n\

\For you, the Almighty, have done great things for\\

\n\

\me, and holy is your Name.”\\

\
\n\

Second, she affirms that God is a God of justice who works on behalf of the systemically oppressed:\

\n\
\

\“Your mercy reaches from age to age\\

\n\

\for those who fear you.\\

\n\

\You have shown strength with your arm;\\

\n\

\you have scattered the proud in their conceit;\\

\n\

\you have deposed the mighty from their thrones\\

\n\

\and raised the lowly to high places.\\

\n\

\You have filled the hungry with good things,\\

\n\

\while you have sent the rich away empty.”\\

\
\n\

Finally, she looks to the future with hope, affirming that God is coming to her aid and will fulfill the promises that were made to her ancestors:\

\n\
\

\“You have come to the aid of Israel your servant,\\

\n\

\mindful of your mercy—\\

\n\

\the promise you made to our ancestors—\\

\n\

\to Sarah and Abraham\\

\n\

\and their descendants forever.”\\

\
\n\

Unlike the privileged life, Mary’s life as a “lowly servant” fell within the limits of ordinary experience. She was unable to transcend the realities of the oppressed women of color of her day. As theologian \Grace Ji-sun Kim\ teaches us, theology is biography. Mary’s theology grew out of her lived experiences of oppression. Her lived experiences required a robust theology that could withstand the pain and disillusionment that she regularly faced. Her understanding of God had to be intimately linked to her pain, so much so that hope and God were found in pain.\

\n\

What would it look like for privileged Westerners to \intentionally turn toward the very pain that we so often avoid\, intentionally seeking out evidence that God is present, active, and bringing hope? Because in the end we must ask ourselves: How can we seek hope and God in the midst of devastating systemic pain if our whole lives are about escaping the reality of such pain?\

Mariah grew up in a Minnesota family of artists and musicians, where she first heard \On Being\ over the airwaves at age 11. She’s been a proud listener ever since.\

\n\

She collected stories of human resilience and kindness in the classrooms of George Washington University — earning a degree in International Affairs with concentrations in the Middle East and Conflict Resolution — and over many cups of coffee in community movements, from nuclear nonproliferation, to interfaith dialogue, to compassionate communication.\

\n\

Mariah worked as a program associate at the Sustained Dialogue Campus Network and lived in southern India for a spell as a documentary curator. When she’s not submerged in a good book she might be found laughing with her teenage sisters or playing chamber music as a member of the Markado trio.\
