A Benediction to Remember

Any speech that begins with the following is worth the time you give it:

“God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, … where we met thee, lest our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee.”
Toward the middle of the speech, Dr. Joseph Lowery has this to say about our “choices on the side of love.” How can you disagree with that?  Republican or Democrat…It’s beautiful.
“And now, Lord, in the complex arena of human relations, help us to make choices on the side of love, not hate; on the side of inclusion, not exclusion; tolerance, not intolerance.”
Here’s the full go at it…oh, the closing isn’t bad either – “When the Red Man can get ahead man…” So good…

This is an excerpt from Food Democracy Now!

Take a quick read below. Our local and national food supply has grown to be one of the paramount issues in my life. If you believe our food system needs to be changed, please go the Food Democracy Now’s website to learn more as well to sign this petition to make change. It seriously takes less than 30 seconds – please check it out!

Thanks for the support!

“As such, we are dedicated to advancing the dialogue on food, family farm, environmental and sustainability issues at the legislative and policy level. We understand the dynamic interplay between today’s industrialized agricultural system and its impacts on human health and well-being, health care costs, rural communities and the environment. We advocate for policies that encourage sustainable, humane, organic and natural food systems.

We seek to transform today’s system by advancing best practices in food production, animal husbandry, conservation of natural resources, renewable energy and soil preservation. Through these efforts we hope to stimulate local food systems, promote rural economic development, encourage a new generation of farmers and respond to the growing public demand for wholesome, fairly-produced food. We will also support candidates who advance this vision and who embrace common sense policies that respect our nation’s air, water, soil, livestock, food workers, consumers and family farmers.

We hope that you will join us in this national movement to implement real and significant change in our nation’s food, agricultural and environmental policies.”
