A Blog To Rosie

This incredibly courageous woman took a stand for our country and deserves to be recognized and applauded. I would like to create a blog space where we can thank her. Today, she posted the following comments on her web site:

9/11 affected me deeply, as I know it did many Americans. The falling of the twin towers served to remind me that many of the assumptions Americans have about their lives are rooted in false feelings of security. In light of this reminder, I have begun doing exactly what this country, at its best, allows for me to do: inquire. Investigate. America is great in so many ways, one of which is the freedom to speak, and indeed think, freely. I have, of late, begun exercising the rights bestowed upon me by the democratic system I value, and the exercising of these rights has taken the form of an inquiry into what happened five years ago, an inquiry that resists the dominant explanations and that dares to entertain ideas that push me to the edge of what is bearable. I have come to no conclusions and, given the scope of the subject, will not for some time.

If the very act of asking is so destabilizing for people, than I have to wonder whether the fabric of our democracy is indeed so raveled it is beyond salvage. My own belief is that the act of asking is itself reparative, because it brings to life the values on which our constitution rests. I am, therefore, pledging my allegiance, hand over heart, trying, as always, for a rigorous truth."~

This has been a very painful journey for all of us, but for those who are in the spotlight and are absorbing most of the heat, it is even more painful. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We did not venture to this place out of hatred, or partisanship. We are here because of the glaring truth that we cannot deny.

A favorite quote from Thomas Jefferson:

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first"

We continue to endure the legalized version of the first. IMPEACH.
