The future of our nation and our democracy looks bad for the
working class people of our nation. Most of us realize that our
democracy is in tatters. It is election time—but who really thinks
that a new bunch of elected officials will really stop our decline
and end the corruption? We know the government of our nation
is planning a new war against Russia and China. We know
our tax funds are being used for endless wars that are not in the
interest of the people of this nation. This is causing severe cuts
in all of our domestic programs.
All of us, of whatever color of our skin or ethnicity, must join
together and support each other in our many activities to get
liberty and justice for all.
Our democracy works only when our elected officials are frightened
by the people out on the streets. That is our only hope to get them
to heed the voice of the many, not the few.

NAME TAG DAY
Each day brings a chance to talk to people about
things that concern us — but we are hesitant to
start a conversation with people we don’t know.
On our Name Tag Day we will hand out name tags
to people that are open to talking to strangers about
anything. Imagine if you were suddenly friends with
everyone! How would that change the way we
interact? Wouldn’t that make the world a kinder
gentler place? How about you try it?
