RE “WITH hope comes action” by Yvonne Abraham (Metro, Dec. 4): For those members of the clergy who struggle to inspire hope in worshipers, who themselves can find precious little hope after a presidential candidate was elected “whose words and deeds mock them,” there is a billboard in Dublin that may give inspiration.

The graffiti with a conscience boldly declares: “In a world full of shame and regret, do something to be proud of.” These words of Irish songwriter Damien Dempsey are painted by street artist Maser.

The post-election “anxiety, despair, anger, fear, disbelief, [and] sense of betrayal” that one Unitarian Universalist leader cites may yet energize the next successful revolution in our country and fuel our bold actions now.
