FIVE EASY QUESTIONS
 

"SO SAY WE ALL"

With these four words, Commander Adama rallies the remnants of the Human Race after their decisive battle following the devastating Cylon sneak attack that puts Civilization to flight in the new remake of Battlestar Galactica.

No small task, as I found out when I started a grass-roots effort to involve anti-war protestors in a bigger picture.

Less than a month after the Iraqi elections, I found myself appreciating not only the value of the collective but unknown responses to my first "NO EXIT" poll, but also the responsibility I had accepted in soliciting them.

At rally after rally, until the online version was up and running, I showed up with my clipboard offering to hold any protester's sign while they put their thoughts to paper - eventually handing out free bumper stickers to the participants. Bumper stickers with short, sharp messages gleaned from the responses of previous SSWA outings. By the end of Earth Day I had enlisted Lesbians and Hare Krishna devotees, Tibetans and ex-trustees, Grandmothers, Mothers, and the children they loved. A new section of Sterling Online Shops allowed me to present the ongoing results through an online collection of bumper stickers, not for sale as much as for display. A cross section of those who had stood alone but could now see together what they all stood for.

With May Day come and gone, I answered those five questions myself and now I invite you to BINK on the HERO at the top of this page; the one message that every American I engaged hoped would be heard by the rest of the world.
