Post #1 of 7 this week Celebrating 7 Years…

For reasons I have yet to understand this was my all time most viewed post in the history of this blog. Delivered mind-blowing stats last January: the busiest day had over 1,200 views (unheard of for me!). Didn’t make it to the March but played a small roll in getting the word out. And yet, here we are almost a year later and in many ways the social-political situation in this country is going backwards

As we approach the mid-term elections, let’s keep the train moving for Democrats: canvassing, phone banking, texting, talking, tabling, wearing buttons, registering to vote and rallying to TAKE BACK CONGRESS —and remember this quote:

Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.
— Coretta Scott King
