We had been going down to the protest in Denver about once a week for a while. Then Alder saw a CNN piece at a restaurant about the solider in Oakland and got scared and made me promise that I wouldn’t go any more, even without him. There was no question, I stopped going but since then I’ve struggled with what else I can do (and no I don’t think bringing them food is the best form of action). This video has reminded me that we all have a responsibility to use our strngths to stand up for what we believe. There are more ways to be heard and to protest than just standing out on the street.
