"...We were standing outside when he said this, beneath a full moon. It hit me what the problem is. Baird is asking people for far more than just another six months or year of war. He's asking them to have hope.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined.
