A Turning Time For Human Hearts

Today is March 20, the vernal equinox and the International Earth Day. This could be a whole new beginning.

As the Earth comes to life, so could many humans. I believe most Americans’ dream has always envisioned a governing "of the people, by the people, for the people." Most I think understand that only our country could take the lead in bringing about what will preserve and protect the whole Earth community—humans, animals, plants, forests, water, air, soil, whatever.

It is obvious that this is not the agenda of our present administration.

The power of good people is great. In the last four days, four such have said to me, "There is nothing we can do."

Nonsense! If we want accurate information, do not want our tax money to pay for weapons and continued wars, do not want our health, water, or anything else "privatized," we can say "We won’t take it anymore!" We’ll find the way to change course.
