A great anecdote from Kathy Kelly, well worth the read. I wish it answered the question:
“The question isn’t: did these five have a lawful excuse to do what they did! The question is: what’s our excuse not to do more?! What will rise ye?!”
– Mr. Nix (last of the great Irish orators)
Last I checked, my own Irish is way up. I feel well prepared.
Kathy Kelley is right: it’s on me. What am I going to do?
Agreed: if it is to be; it is up to me!
