We can do this people... we have done it before.. we can pull the country back from the edge. [View all]

Those of us who remember the sixties as older teens and twenty somethings.. can attest to this.. we have been in horrid dark places of the soul.. thinking our country would not find its way back.. but shoulder to shoulder people of good intent.. young, old, every color of the rainbow etc etc.. pulled us forward..

I have seen cities burn, been gassed by the police on the U of M campus while waiting for a bus.. fought to have women be able to have bank accts in their names.. removed the law that husbands could commit wives to asylum's on their own..fought 15% interest rates to buy a home.. 20% to buy a car.. the good old days were not so damn good.. but people of good intent kept their eyes on the prize..

Universities were shut down.. old people ate dog food for dinner.. you have no idea. Children were bombed in a church.. young men who did not get their butts into college or Canada went straight to war..

But people of good intent shouldered together and we pulled forward..

We can do this.. we can do this.. we can do this
