    I just read Rivera Sun’s article “Sing the Body Politic, Electric. I have never been so moved as I was when reading this article. It is because she has captured the feelings I have and, I am sure, millions of other Americans have, whether they have read the article or not.
    I am 82 years old and I have had my share of suffering and sorrow, as does every American. I am so very discouraged with the state of affairs in America. I have lost all faith in our government and politicians to redeem the true American spirit I remember so well.

    The Secret to Happiness ~ We Are Happening!
    Find what brings you alive; and do it.
    (not what “I should” to prove that “I’m good,” or good
    at being bad)
    Look to meet people enjoying it too;
    layer texture to our view,
    expand our field of play.
    Lather, rinse, repeat
    as necessary.
    Take it out to the street when necessary.
    Do what you need to be
    what you wish to see.
    Do what only you can.
    Make this happening grand!
    Do it today.
