These are times of turbulent weather and political drama.  Our governor of two months has stripped most of our public workers of collective bargaining rights, that have been fought for, and in place the last 50 years.  He has done so in such a way as to have many from both sides crying foul and showing our legislators what the people of Wisconsin should stand for.

After taking part in one of the three weeks of ongoing demonstrations in the Madison capital; I am proud of the heart and soul of our teachers, firemen, police force and so many others who have taken a stand to fight for their rights in such a peaceful and dignified (if loud) way.  It says a lot about who we are and why we need to come together and treat each other with respect.
