…and I’ll let you figure out how the story ends.
Hello Friends, Colleagues, and Fam,
I only have 8 minutes, but want to send this out today! (Day one of the Democratic National Convention).
I’d like to introduce you to three fantastic fellows (two of which are in Philly!), and encourage you to follow them on Facebook:
Justin Brice: A Bernie Delegate posting updates, a GIS Analyst, and grounded young man https://www.facebook.com/justin.brice.58?fref=ts
Paul Fenn: An environmental lawyer, activist, and champion for alternative, distributed energy https://www.facebook.com/paul.fenn.16?fref=ts
Steve Adams: A Rock Star, Bernie Champion flying to Philly today, and all around great guy: https://www.facebook.com/stevenrueadams
And, from Bernie Sanders Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/senatorsanders/?fref=nf) today:
"What I believe today is that change never takes place from the top down. It takes place when people by the millions sometimes over decades and sometimes over centuries, determine that the status quo – the world they see in front of them – is not the world that should be. And they come together. And sometimes they get arrested. And sometimes they’re on a picket line. And sometimes they die in the struggle.
And what human history is about is passing that torch on from generation to generation to generation. A people that pick up the torch that may have begun hundreds or literally thousands of years ago. And young people stand in front of the world today and say, "No, this is not the world that I am comfortable with. This is the world we are going to change."
There are major issues that confront us today. And we need your help. We need the idealism and the energy and the intelligence of millions of people to join us in the fight to make America the kind of country we know it must become."
I encourage you to follow these four leaders (including that Bernie guy), and take time this next several months to build and/or feed your networks of friends, colleagues, and family.
In my opinion, things are going to get worse for the planet under Trump or Hillary, and those of us that care will need to unite better and stronger than before.
P.S. Yes, we are still moving forward slowly in the transition of the Democracy Digest list to another format (including auto subscribe/unsubscribe) and likely a leaderless leadership… please let me know if you can help with that.
