Day 20

We have been watching the PBS series Liberty, An American Revolution. It took couragous men from different beliefs and walks of life and brought them to together to form a country free of foreign entanglements from 13 small colonies. These men had different political beliefs but they were able to come together and compromise and work to build a country for the betterment of the people.
Where are the special brave men today that we need to lead this country and improve the life of our people. All I see is greed, poisoned partisan politics and corruptness.
I see the goodness in people who are donating money to the people of Haiti. But are some of these same people the ones with the attitude that because I have healthcare, why should I care if anyone else does or I'm not gay so why should I care that everyone has the same rights as everyone else.
