    "Putting our struggles into a wider context really adds to the conversation."

    So nicely put. And it's hard to find people who want the context.  Day to day, I find so many posts which ignore the history which enfolds us all. How hard is it to remember even six months ago? (My last post someone objected to because Obama hadn't said specifically that in the site I cited -- but it's only been six months since a lot of people here were quoting him saying that cutting food stamps was unacceptable. It's not exactly 40 year old historical context! So I shouldn't expect people to remember history... but I do.)
