** this posting is for all those family members & friends who love me but can’t quite figure out why the heck I am so relentless about activism & writing & wearing buttons & going to protests, & who btw also never read this blog, as far as I know . Heh heh… The answer to this riddle is:
I do it because I CAN (& also because it’s FUN )
& mostly because most people are so darn silent & apathetic, that those of us who DO squawk seem to wind up being rather loud & insistent, & then louder & more insistent.
p.s. plus of course, we must not forget THIS, I also meet & wind up making friends with the very finest possible people!!
Great & very relevant quote: “Damn what anybody thinks of you – do what’s right. It’s really fun.” – Lucy Lawless, N. Z. actor & activist arrested with 6 Greenpeace activists on Save the Arctic campaign (from Sierra magazine Jan/Feb. 2013)
