Subject: RE: MANY VOICES with Pete Seeger 1/28/05
Thanks Gonzo, maybe I am a bit too sensitive. I just get upset when people stereotype a whole country. After 9/11 there were many who directed their anger toward Muslims. I hate seeing a whole country, race or religion ridiculed or hated because of the actions of a few. Many of us worked really hard to get Bush out of office, but it did not work out. To hear the remarks like the comment you made can really hurt and make others forget their is a strong opposition to what Bush represents. He may have won an election, but he did not get a mandate like he claims. One election and one man cannot tear down the spirit of opposition. This country and the globe we share are too strong to be taken down by a clown from Texas. Rest assured, we are not dancing in the streets because Bush gets four more years. We are taking to the streets and making our voices heard.
I am sure your comments were meant innocently. I did not mean to offend you either, but I hope you can see where I am coming from.
This concert shows the results of people working together and finding common bonds. It is greatly needed at a time like this. Together we can make a change.
