I first came upon what you are about to see on a blog I read regularly. The opening lines of the post read:
“This is the most heartbreaking video I have seen in a long, long time. I cried and cried.”
The lady who writes this blog isn’t prone to crying without very good reason, but even so, I doubted it would have a similar effect on me.
I was sadly wrong.
The situation described in this video did not come about in the last eight years. The blame for it goes back much further than that. Yet, George W Bush is at least as much to blame as all the presidents before him; all the senators and members of Congress who betrayed their own people so shamefully by allowing this situation to arise, and fester, and grow like a great, suppurating, carcinoma in the body of a once-proud nation.
This video makes no political statement, yet of itself it is a condemnation of all who lead, or have ever led this country – both Democrat and Republican alike.
Watch and remember – then, be sure to remember again this coming November, before you cast your vote for the next president of these dis-United States.
Unless, of course, you’re one of those Americans who just doesn’t care.
My thanks to “WiseWebWoman” for the link to this video.
