Bloggers: Hold On To That Hope
In case you are new to my blog, here's a quick debriefing. I am a Canadian. I can't vote in the U.S. election, but it is my firm belief, as a citizen of the world, that what happens in the U.S. directly effects all of us. Having said that, I embrace the right to express my opinion (I'm not asking anyone for permission) and I do agree with Hidden in France that 'Blog City' (Liberty Speak for blogosphere), has been down in the dumps. They've had 'A Week of Wound Licking'. Perhaps a titch negative - ominous - foreboding. That's alright. We have to hold onto something before we can drop it. I'm just saying....Hold on to that hope. Don't let it go. Don't let this historical moment, opportunity, fall through the cracks. I think he'll be really good for you and for the rest of us (world).
SIDE BAR: It saddens me that many bloggers seem unsure or hesitant to state their political views. We finally have an avenue to do this. No one will judge you, and if they do, who cares. I don't think there are many of us who have shareholders to please. I don't think many of us can get fired for stating our opinions. We have the power to move people, change lives and give others something to think about. If you blog about pretty rooms, now is the time to blog (at least one post or one sentence) about future pretty rooms, filled with people who are free and safe and peaceful and healthy and hopeful...and what you personally are going to do to contribute to this progress.
