The boys got me sick (again), and it looks I won't be making it to the HUGE anti-war protest at the RNC. Boo.
On the upside, I've been thinking hard about ways to get active and utilize resources that aren't a couple hundred miles away.
I would like to say that I'm really impressed by all the action I'm seeing in many of the groups and collectives and networks that are organizing for the conventions. If only we could maintain a fraction of that enthusiasm to work on future projects as a unified community.
If you're wondering why people are marching at the RNC the simple answer is because we are angry at how our government is representing us (the people; you me and your children). It's not enough anymore to sit at home and gripe about dumb laws, but ultimately put up with them. This is our country and we should decide how it is run. What is important to you is almost always not what is important to a rich, white, conservative, over forty business man.
Let's open a national dialogue with everyone we know about what it is we really want as a nation, and in our communities.
