We are the leaders....
I say the finger points to us – those of us who are against war, who are informed, who know what is happening every moment in our name. Those of us who have not stopped our daily lives as usual and stepped up to the plate to end war.
I hear the wan search for a leader or leaders – where is our MLK, our Joan of Arc (am I reaching or what) – I could say our Barbara Jordan, Rose Byrd, Shirley Chisolm, Ann Richards – but I get blank stares.
Where are our leaders? WE are our leaders. We cannot wait another minute for someone else to step forward – it has to be us. And it has to be now.
