At the polls today we saw a group of young people with handmade signs in favor of Markey (Democrat, who won, HOORAY!!) and The Green Alliance. Certainly we need a Green Alliance; we also need Markey, a low-key, highly effective legislator; and above all we need young people to vote and be engaged – as these ones certainly were. It was a most encouraging sight.
Elsewhere other positive handmade posters appeared, too. There’s more going on in the US than the newspapers will tell you.
