This old anvil laughs at many broken hammers.
There are men who can’t be bought.
The fireborn are at home in fire.
The stars make no noise.
You can’t hinder the wind from blowing.
Time is a great teacher.
Who can live without hope?

In the darkness with a great bundle of grief
the people march.
In the night, and overhead a shovel of stars for
keeps, the people march:
“Where to? what next?”
Sandberg, The People Yes.

    Maybe this groundswell will be enough to water the Tree of Liberty. We’ll see.

      Perhaps. Jefferson though wrote that the Tree of Liberty is watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    CNN reports! “A few dozens marched yesterday in the so-called “Right to Life” march. The anti-women’s rights, trump-supporting Neanderthals …”

    This is a big damn deal. Why don’t they show any of this on the news. I just can’t understand it. it almost seems like they don’t want U.S. citizens to know this, No! That couldn’t be! We have a fair and honest press corp. They would never intentionally hide important things from us… would they?
