Tilting at Windmills

based on a column by Katrina Wilcox. September 23, 2005

So ... my fellow warriors on the path to truth, accountability, and justice ... are you tired of begging? Have you signed enough petitions, written enough letters, called your representatives enough times to realize that none of that is doing any good? Are you bone-weary, frustrated, and just plain pissed that your endless pleading continues to fall on deaf ears? Yeah ... me, too.

You don't need to be told that we live in insane times. We have definitely fallen down the rabbit hole. And while we are reeling ... trying to gain our footing, trying to make sense out of it all, trying desperately to do something to make it stop - they continue killing. Every day, every moment, every second ... they are killing more in Iraq and now in America. We are out of time. No more time to convince our representatives to do the right thing. No more time to wait for the next rigged election. No more time to wait for that hopeful someday of completed investigations. We must stand up and stop them now.

But how? Maybe they can never be stopped by working within the system. Maybe using the rules laid out by the system to affect change from within the system will never work.

Maybe the only sure-fire way to get this administration of criminals and their enablers to quit ignoring us is for a couple million of us to plunk down around the White House and Congress and shut down the government ... till we get our country back.

Maybe you have a better idea. If so, please speak up.

In the meantime, my husband and I -- who have never protested before -- are heading to DC with video equipment and digital camera, protest signs and shirts, and rock solid determination. Maybe this event will turn the tide.
