This thread is a thing of beauty.

I remember chanting ERA now. If I had a magic wand I would wave it for us to have laser like focus on this issue. I am frustrated by the myriad of what ifs and yeah buts that water this down into a tasteless soup. Laser focus. Attention and action are our most vital tools. This can only be done one mind at a time and I am sorry but it is sometimes a struggle for me to stay encouraged. Every day with everyone I meet I have to be willing to discuss a touchy subject and be prepared for the response (or lack thereof) AND then use my Power and Influence (aka "super powers) to persuade or to affirm The Message. I have to get up every day with my goals in mind and Stay Focused. All of us focused on that one goal, imagine that. We Can Do Anything!

Peggy you got some really great shots of him! Thanks for sharing

Gratitude to you and WC. Music gives us flow by being engaging whilst we also lose ourselves. Flow heals & is touted for pain relief in some circles.

Thank you for your post.

I too am from NC. My ancestry here predates the formation of "a more perfect union" and I have and will continue to march with Reverend Barber. I am now an assistant judge with my local board of elections. I am a traveling voter registration drive as I keep the forms in my car so if you are in my vicinity and you want to register we can make that happen as I have for more than 100 folks and counting since last summer.

My people have lived on the same piece of dirt for over five generations. Tough, smart, hard working independent thinkers formed the foundation that I stand on. We didn't lay down for the Kings men before and sure won't be doing it now.

Get up. Go to your board of elections. Volunteer. It's not that difficult. Shine a light.

Love, Peace and Shelter. lmsp

Husband And Wife Doctors Claim Her Fibroid Removal Procedure Spread Cancer

Source: NPR and WSJ

Dr. Amy Reed and her husband Dr. Hooman Noorchashm are campaigning against a standard procedure to remove fibroids in the uterus, called morcellation, in which the mass is ground up and removed in minimally-invasive surgery. They claim it spread Dr. Reed’s previously undetected cancer.

Dr. Noorchashm and Dr. Reed joined Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss the fibroid removal technique and their campaign against it.

“You are basically taking a procedure, which puts women basically in a collision course with a stage four cancer,” said Dr. Noorchashm, noting that this is what happened in his wife’s case.

Dr. Reed and Dr. Noorchashm say they’ve brought their concerns and data about the procedure to their hospital, but the hospital has not stopped offering it.

Doctors Eye Cancer Risk in Uterine Procedure
Popular Technique to Remove Growths Comes Under Question

Updated Dec. 18, 2013 1:21 p.m. ET
An increasingly popular method of removing common uterine growths is coming under assault by some doctors worried about the risk of spreading a potentially deadly cancer.

Brigham and Women's Hospital, a prominent Boston medical center, said Tuesday it plans to impose new limits on the procedure, called morcellation. And Massachusetts General Hospital said it expects to change what it tells women about possible risks from the...
