Honestly, what, in God's name, have we let our country become?

********************************
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
~Thomas Jefferson.
It's not Bush's fault, It's not McCain's fault. It's my fault. It's your fault. We let this happen. Take accountability. We've let each other down. It's time to undo those failings. Pick up the banner for Obama by volunteering in your neighborhood. Get involved. DO something before it's too late.

Honestly, it's the Least we can do.

Wake up People. The situation is serious.

No man is an island, entire of itself
every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main
if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were,
as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were
any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls
it tolls for thee.
~John Donne

Ashli, this is honest, and well-written, and altogether beautiful, mostly because I can relate to it.
