A call to action

I stumbled upon a rally in Central Park today, where thousands had gathered to bring attention to a critical issue we face as a planet right now. Can a phone call stop a genocide? It's worth a shot. Its the least we can do. Does the public still have a voice in politics "for the people, by the people"? It's worth finding out. Some times I feel disillusioned by this countries political process. Attending rally after rally to free Tibet, and against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and seeing the issues being ignored by the media, as well as watching two elections get stolen...Doesn't leave me with a lot of faith, but I still have hope. Hope that if people continue to come together and demand justice, the will of the people will be heard (or else our democracy is truly an illusion). Hope that the United Nations can get beyond its paper pushing and actually be empowered to do something on behalf of the people on this planet who chose peace and love for themselves and their (global) neighbors. I'll be calling my congressman/woman this week. Will you too? More information can be found on this website:
