128. Is this a great time to be alive ?
I cannot answer this for its the only time that I can relate to ......I can not imagine any other time for all I know is through my own life experience. I think its not about the time we are in but about were you are at the time. What's going on inside not what the outside looks like. Some people go through life blind and unconscious for them any time would be the same.

As for what's going on in the country at this time......I imagine many of us have not been very active in politics before . Myself I chose to close off from looking at it, it was to big and I felt very powerless. These days I can no longer close me eyes and ignore it , thats why I have come here to DU and learn and be a part of helping to create change.

I often feel a little intimidated at DU..... I think its important for people to realize there are others like me who have ignored politics and were from the "nothing we can do about it make -up" I am also dyslexic and i struggle with the written word so letters do not come easy for me . I am grateful for all those who post them here to send.

we are all at a different place in our path in life , and our involvement in this fight.
Thanks to all of those who have been patient with political newbies like myself.
