136. I put in a lot of time with Health Care for All Colorado, and they devoted a lot of energy to
a hearing, but it didn't really pan out. I think part of the problem was that rather than be directed towards illuminating the people on the receiving end, it was for the politicians etc to hear, and they simply didn't show.

These experiences definitely need to be heard, but I don't know a good way to do it. I think we are coming to realize that we are on our own, and need to stop waiting for leaders, and figure out our own ways to bring people together and take ACTION.

I think that video about the kids taking over the school board in AZ is quite instructive. :) :hi:
