A Poem

"On NPR's All things Considered last night, they did a story about black folks living in very red Missourri and what this election means to them. Many of those interviewed had never voted because they either a) didn't care, b) didn't think that their vote mattered, or c) didn't know how to vote.

Some of their stories and views were very interesting, and for those interested I'm sure the story can be found on the NPR website..

the piece ended with one of the guys reading a text message that he got from a friend and was also passing around......

Rosa sat so Martin could walk

Martin walked so Obama could run

Obama is running so our children can fly...

I love things that are concise yet say so much with so few words...

pass it on..."
