Money is not the problem...
Money is a tool to be used by progressive, compassionate people who will not give in to resistance, will not let go of the highest call, the call to progress, rational thinking, integrity and compassionate action and this idea of America...
What are Americans? Who are we now and who are the people we want to surpass in our own version of greatness? Not a corporate journalists', or corporate copywriters' version of greatness.
What is America? This unfolding question is answered by its history with all its complexity. If one carefully studies the inspiration, the failure, the stories of people, we find the answers for today and our future.
I am not referring to "popular" history, I am referring to the history of the 1st Americans, the Harriet Tubmans, the rich plantation owners who hid the Cherokee people, and then the slaves, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delanore Roosevelt and his wife;Eleanor Roosevelt, the men and women, prominent and not prominent who showed up and took their place.
We the people...of today--who show up, day-after-day and do what needs to be done.
We are the new America.
