 “HAMILTON”

ORIGINAL BROADWAY PLAY

by

Lin-Manuel Miranda

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamilton_%28musical%29
Miranda said that the portrayal of Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson,
George Washington, and other Caucasian historical figures
by black and Hispanic actors should not require
any substantial suspension of belief by audience members 
“Our cast looks like America looks now, and that’s certainly intentional,” he said.
“It’s a way of pulling you into the story and allowing you
to leave whatever cultural baggage you have about the founding fathers at the door.”
He noted “We’re telling the story of old, dead white men but we’re using actors of color,
and that makes the story more immediate and more accessible to a contemporary audience.”

We, as citizens of the United States of America,
cannot be bystanders to
VIOLENCE/FEAR/HATE.

X

We share a moral obligation to our Constitution: ALL ARE CREATED EQUAL;
to the improvisational nature of America: A WORK IN PROGRESS;
a force of light,
not darkness and walls and division,
to the world’s theatre and roundtable;
and
we must be a template of practicing democracy, opening up vistas of humanity,
knowing OUR President is to dynamically represent
what we, as a nation, cherish.

X

Our President is not a BRAND or a reality show!
Our President needs the content of character of a mountain’s summit;
the sweet+ fierce light of dawn in deep despair;
the  intellectual capacity to move/bend/push/pull
like the strong currents of the Mississippi River;
practice the clear sight of the vast blue sky;
to persevere/prevail like the pine tree in a tempest;
to listen to the songs of other nations- and hear what is unfamiliar;  
the capacity/humility to negotiate, multi-spherically, with other nations;
to welcome innovation + foresight+ generate questions before answers;
possess the maturity/patience to wait in the turbulent seas of ambiguity in negotiation;
the courage and compassion to step up to social injustices of /for ALL;
to be a dignified and creative vehicle of humanity
and
to be “the better angels of our nature”.

Describe INTEGRITY.
