Scientifically-based, well thought-out, disciplined approached, started years ago. True leadership. Vision tempered with methodic deliberateness. Short-, medium-, long-term benefits.

Meanwhile, back in the U.S., all we have are short-sighted, greedy, shallow, posturing bloviators in charge.

Grrr.

‘People Helped You, Whether You Knew It Or Not’ : NPR

A reminder that we can’t erase history, that we need to learn from it. Systemic, belligerent racism almost destroyed this gentleman’s life and almost deprived the nation’s veteran community a crucial asset. He, and those who supported him, fought back, non-violently, and won the Good Fight. People like him continue to change the world for the better. 

My view: Racism is Evil and a Sin.
