Thank you rescuers, for two rescued diaries in a row. I am in a place where I see the value of stories. I watch Rachel clearly explain the facts about what is happening in our halls of power. I read brilliant exposes here and all over the web. And I keep thinking, why do so many of my friends and colleagues root for the other side? Bright, compassionate, kind, generous people. Why do they buy so much of what the right sells? It is because the right has a narrative. Watch Fox for as much as you can in the day. Try to get past the propaganda and hate long enough to see what their method is. They talk about people, not polices. We need to do both. Not abandon the hard hitting truth telling. Not avoid the complex policy debates. But add to all that human faces and human stories. Corporations are not people my friends, but neither are policies.
I have started a new group, Tell the Story. I invite those of you who have enjoyed my stories to follow the group or join it. And for those of you who have a story to tell please join my group. This is a place where policy meets people. Where people wrestle with daily life and the effects of our political system.
I will be posting regularly. Hope to see you there.
