Can a moment, generate a movement?

How long will we sit on the sidelines, wringing our hands, wiping away tears....chanting "ain't it awful, ain't it awful!" ?

If there is to be a movement, all of us will need to put skin in the game and show up.

If not now? When? What ELSE needs to happen? The gains of our LGBT brethren although promising, is not enough to make us go back into our tents.

I will stay tuned to DU, refuse to watch the talking heads, reach out to my local liberal/progressive network, and prepare to sacrifice my free time, my energy, my presence, as needed.

Are you in?

1. I guess the answer is "no".

I ask you, how quickly will the passion fizzle out...and what will be the topic de jour next week, next month?

Isn't it time for a "Democratic Above Ground" ?
