Freedom Riders -

A very good documentary on PBS tonight about the Freedom Riders - simply a group of young people who banded together to change our country's history -

More information at the PBS website - click here

Click here for a powerful story on CNN about one of the men featured in the documentary – James Zwerg

I wonder if part of what brought a tear to my eye, in both the documentary and Mr. Zwerg's story, is a longing for that energy in our country today. What if, What if young people today stood up to the money changers, the pickle vendors, the plutocracy, and the oligarchs, and demanded they release their grip on our economy?

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Margaret Mead
