45. Of course its a place to start! BUT, do you see that kind of interest here?
THAT is what I'm getting at, and what I get back is lectures on "being nice".

What is that quote about no power has ever been ceded easily? We have been nice, we have been polite, we have asked graciously.

And what we get back from that, with few exceptions, is crickets.

So, they think they will guilt us with lectures on being nice, and not being angry.

It worked so well for all the other civil rights struggles, didn't it?

They put all that energy into castigating me, when they could put that energy into seeing a possibility for action, and gathering some folks together to organize it and carry it forward.

What a concept.

We're left to try to organize it and do it all ourselves, and then get told we should "get involved".

Words fail. :nuke:

Thank you for helping with our project, and lets see if we can actually find some people who would like to take this kind of action instead of playing parent!

Thanks for sharing your experience! :yourock: :pals:
