We had to put up with government shutdowns, bigotry on high scale levels, climate change disaster and bad economic times.
We miss many Kossacks this year as well. Testvet comes to mind, but so many more have walked on. I always cringe when I think of who will walk on and then I smile when I think of people like Navajo becoming the Community Builder. Like every year, there is good and bad. I am old enough to realize we deal with what comes and keep on standing for what is just and right. We are the calvary and we truly are on our own.
We have much work to do in 2014 with holding feet to the fire and GOTV. We need to get rid of these tea party legislators and governors. We need more meet ups and I wish all of my friends here a prosperous and better New Year than we experienced in 2013. We do not need anothe 2010.
I wanted to start this Sunday morning by remembering all of our Kossack friends who are grieving, have walked on, are sick and lonely. I want you to know this place provides us with sanity and some vent relief. I want to hug you all and say let's make 2014 a year to remember.
Young folks...pick up the torch and become the voice for the voiceless and let us make 2014 the year of change for better times. I am posting a candle in memory of those we lost in 2013. Please feel free to add your own memories and candles.
Happy New Year dear friends..We need to support this site as well. Can you imagine facing life without out Kossack friends in this day and time?
Remember when we work to change the political climate, the life you save could very well be your own. Stand up for justice. Speak up against hatred and be the activist you know you are..Sometimes change happens with just a kind word.
