The definition of RESISTANCE – an underground organization of a conquered or nearly conquered country engaging in sabotage and secret operations against occupation forces and collaborators.
There has been a lot of talk about a forming resistance movement in the United States. This sounds like an archaic expression to be used in modern times. It usually had to do with foreign oppression, wars, enemies. Are we at war with ourselves in this country?
I wonder where this is leading us. Resistance is usually represented as one force pulling against another. Since the last election there has been a growing division within. The most vocal and stubborn are those who can’t seem to let it go and relish in any piece of news that will suit their purpose. We could easily become a house divided.
