I agree. Protest we must. Not just because it is going to or not going to get us something tangible by way of change just now. But because it sets in motion unintended and unforseeable ‘collateral benefits’. Anyday that than be party, knowingly, to collateral damage. In the short term, the future is unknowable to us. In the long term, we will surely not be there to know. What matters to me is what I do now and here. It will always matter. To me and to those I touch. Now and forever. Read this solidly honest and down to earth piece full of real stories. Ask yourself what is your story going to be about.
