History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.

  1. Nice to see you again. The only thing wrong with some being silent is that when you do speak, the volume is just ramped up from the oppositional views. It feels so tense and chaotic that no solution is on the horizon. I have to wonder if mutual respect and common ground is even possible anymore. Makes me sad.

    So good to hear from you. Yes, the whole state of affairs is saddening. I know that there are good people, lots of them — if only they had the voice that the bad guys do. I live near SF and looking at the rally that is proposed for Crissy Field. Trying to get my courage up to go and hope that there will be a million good guys there to out number the bad ones. That led me to other ways that perhaps I can be involved and that led me to Martin Luther King’s thoughtful quote!
