How Deep.Is Your Love?

Placing this link at the top of my post, so it is easy to find. I have given this enough thought, time to transfer to action. My love for our country is deep as my love for the health of our planet.

Please donate at least $1.
Goal is to gather enough donations and media attention to get to the January/February Democratic debates.

Thank you in advance, and please feel free to share the link far and wide.

As we approach a new decade, may we do so with courage and creativity, and the knowledge that we have survived so much, we can keep moving forward, even when we are still.

Change begins within. 
Action inspires hope.

At this point, we have nowhere to go but up.
We can do this!

Check Your Voter Registration Status

My modern interpretation
of a well known Plato quote. 
I cannot stress enough how important it is for as many US citizens as possible to exercise our right to vote. Voting is not only our right, it is our civic duty.

As a person who is currently working more than one job to make ends meet, I understand how exhausting it is to tread water.

Please do not give up on the good.
Seek the good.
Share the good.
Be the good.

Northern California Gifting a Tree Project

Dear Friends,
I found this in my facebook memory feed, and thought it worth another share.
Imagine if this type of program was duplicated all across America and the world.
We can do this.

"PLEASE SHARE!!! We are doing the Gifting a Tree Project again this year. What does that mean? Buy a live tree at one of the participating nurseries listed here, take it home for the holidays to enjoy then return it to the same nursery by Jan 17th. We will be picking up the gifted trees and distributing them to fire survivors (from any of the local recent fires over the past 4 years) from a location in Santa Rosa, last weekend of January 2020. Anything left over will be taken to Lake County for distribution there. Thank you for your participation and happy holidays. Call or text with questions. Kathy Blair 707-972-2084

Questions About Homelessness

I'm in favor of a hand up as opposed to a long term hand out, but the proposed cuts feel more like kicking someone when they are down. I cannot support that. Cutting services to people in need hurts us all.

Why are we not identifying vacant buildings in every city and every neighborhood, and pooling our resources to house our fellow citizens in need? If you own a building and it lies vacant and in disrepair, sell it to a non-profit who can put it to constructive use.

We have enough collective wealth and wisdom to solve these societal challenges. We can do better.

By the People, for the People and the Planet

I believe that love is the strongest force in the universe.
I also believe that the health of our planet and the moral duty to preserve, protect and restore it for future generations should guide every decision we make as a nation.
For, as the United States of America was created
by the people, for the people, we should also be for the planet.

We must improve our ability to work together, to tap into our collective wisdom, to work with respect for and in partnership with nature to ensure we all have a functioning, hospitable place to live.

Now is not the time to take a "wait and see" attitude. Now is the time to step up our efforts.
There are no gigs on a dead planet.
