Sunday Food for Thought: Speaking Truth to Power

Via AlterNet, Adam Howard writes:

Like many progressives, I was thrilled and moved by the actions taken by 50 brave and bold high school scholars, who seized an opportunity to confront the president with a letter calling for an end to our policy of torture, during what was supposed to be a routine photo op. With their simple, eloquent plea they gave voice to the millions of Americans who Bush ignores and managed to be more direct and confrontational then many of the congressmen and congresswomen who were elected in 2006 specifically to take the Administration to task on issues such as these have been.

That's all it takes: one moment in time and the courage to make it count.
