I fear that today we are in danger of losing all that is good about us–our United States. I am a witness to the deliberate destruction of the principles that have drawn those seeking freedom and opportunity to our shores. I am watching the progress we have made in civil and human rights disappear before my eyes.
Now that corporations have rights of citizens and money is on equal footing with free speech in our political system; where does that leave us—the real people?
If we do not recognize, organize and act against the trend toward discounting us completely, I fear we shall perish. Activism has always preceded progressive public policy that benefits real people. Now is the time. #Act up!
