Happy Labor Day.
For years now it seems that all the news is about global economic turmoil, political assassinations, ruinous storms, and rioting in the streets - and the most our elected leaders have offered is the distraction of new puppies and royal weddings. The last decade has been enough to extinguish hope. It seems like everything good is being destroyed, not least the progress made by the labor movement. Before he was executed Joe Hill famously said: "don't mourn, organize." I agree.
In the face of disaster, I don't know what else to do but believe - and sing.
