Lions Roar : March 2017
a familiar disappointment and anger arising in me. Some left me feeling that these were the words of people who don’t know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of oppression. People with no skin in the game. Certainly, these were not the words I was hearing from my black female best friend, my Mexican American niece, or my trans friend. If I hear someone say that we’ll make it through this, I think to myself: who’s the “we” that got through Reagan and Bush? The Reagan/Bush era was a horror I LOVE YOU, Western Buddhism, but as a gay man, I found your privileged lack of urgency in the wake of the election of Donald Trump disturbing. This is not a new feeling for me. When I read the initial post-election comments of Buddhist teachers, I felt FROM WHERE I SIT May All Beings Be Safe In this dangerous time, says teacher and activist PABLO DAS, American Buddhists must stand with all who are threatened and make Buddhist communities places of safety. for my community. An entire genera- tion of intellectuals, artists, friends, and lovers didn’t “make it” through Reagan. I worked on a suicide-prevention line for gay teens during the George W. Bush administration.

It’s a legitimate threat that provokes our very real traumatic histories.
