  •  Dear Boatsie — (5+ / 0-)

    thank you so much for keeping me, and us, up to date on this.  

    There is so much cause for despair, so much cause for fury, so many reasons for sadness.  I used to be a pathologically cheerful person; nowadays it is very hard to know what to feel.  While I'm not usually a big fan of Jackson Browne, I think this song of his really hits the right emotional spot:

    Freedom isn't "on the march." Freedom dances.

      there is such sadness these days. nothing like i have ever experienced before. and i am 60.

      these days i wonder why i bother to write this news. it is not as if anyone here at Kos really follows or seems to want to find out what is happening.... it is not as if I write for the rec list or for a big following.... i write because the story must get out there. the literacy level has to rise. it is our only hope.

      and yet i feel such despair over the lack of interest among our readership here. as much as i try to understand that this IS a political site and that I am not a big player here. the message I am trying to share seems like the only message that really matters.

      In the end, I suppose I continue because of people like you. People I resonate with, that I know share the same ... god, i don't even know if there is a word for it, is there?

      Love to you and thank you for the song. Perfect.
