Four years ago we started hearing about “change” and yet we get the wrong things over and over. We look to our president. We usually look to someone else to make changes, and we remain as we are except to maybe get more and more discouraged.
I started this somewhat ridiculous project………and I have gained quite a few followers (thank you) and I look at it now and ask myself who I thought I was that I could make any changes. I choose this one thing to first work on, but oh man it is a doozey.
Now you can either stop following me or stay, but I must tell you that I am feeling a little down today. Everybody loves a winner, and nobody loves a loser, but consider that a lot of people at first fail in their endeavors. And I may not even make a noticeable dent with my efforts, and you can call me crazy if you want and I will take it not completely brave, but I will continue onward with this goal of mine. I am not yet finished.
There are people who worked with American troops in Iraq, and they were left behind there to fend for themselves in the aftermath of a mess we made. Even this old grandma here could see that the interpreters were going to be persecuted, and yet VERY LITTLE has been done to get them to SAFETY. And these people are being tortured and killed in post-war Iraq. Well, there are plenty of other people on the planet in harm’s way…………one can argue that……… But this is the cause that I chose to work on.
And since I am a stubborn old girl I ask you to retweet this message. Send me IDEAS!! I also ask you to send a message asking for help for our allies, the Iraqi interpreters. The message phone at the White House is (202)456-1111. Just please do something. Tomorrow I will still be here doing this no matter what.
