LIVE FROM RALLY IN DETROIT TODAY ON ANNIVERSARY OF THE DSM:
Lila Lipscomb from "Farenheit 9-11" spoke earlier today as well. She said:
"We've been sound asleep since Vietnam. We need to start connecting the dots.
"I had to learn to connect the dots after losing my son. Part of the strategy of those in power has been to strip us (the citizens - the population) of resources. They made it much harder for the people to have power. The result was more poverty and despair, a lack of hope. That's how they built their new military. (More poor kids volunteer for service in the armed forces for economic reasons - a job, help paying for college later, etc.)
"An important thing to remember is to not be isolated. Connect with other learned people. Hug each other - get in each other's space if you have to, but connect. It is empowering, you learn, you educate and activate."
