Why you should march this Saturday

hk-2This morning’s edition of the Weekly Briefing [1] spells out eight reasons — four “big picture” and four, “practical and down to earth” — why you should march in this Saturday’s Moral March on Raleigh [2].

Here’s one:

“North Carolina is Ground Zero in the ideological contest over the nation’s future –America may be politically polarized at this moment in its history, but at some point in the foreseeable future, a combination of demographic, economic and, perhaps even environmental changes is going to help break the logjam. And while there are some encouraging indications that things will break in a progressive direction – the rapid progress in LGBT equality is perhaps the most obvious sign – this is anything but a sure thing, especially given the overwhelming financial resources at the disposal of the forces of reaction. Right now, no state in the union better exemplifies this sharp divide than deeply purple North Carolina. There is simply no more urgent time or better place to join the battle.”

See ya’ Saturday at 9:30!
