One at a time

On Ferguson - I've never seen anything like this uprising for civil rights in my lifetime (I was five years old in 1968) This is important white people. It's WAY important.  Please pay attention and listen.

On Gaza - OMG. My girlchild, the love of my life, landed safely in NYC today after seven months as an American living among Palestinians in their occupied camps.  My daughter was teargassed and didn't think it was a big deal. I'm glad she's home and I applaud her courage and integrity.

And the so forth... if you didn't watch this speech by Rev. Dr. William Barber at NetRoots Nation, Maybe ya oughta.  Just sayin'.

It's one thing to read and write, it's a whole 'nother thing to act.  Talk with your neighbors. Talk with the people you work with. Talk with the cashiers and receptionists and garbage collectors and babysitters and lawn mowers you see every day.  We go forward together. We must reclaim our personhood.  We are moral beings.

Corporations, by definition, are NOT!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
