C.C. is trying to make it to Seattle where his daughter, who just returned from Afghanistan, resides. This place offered him some warmth and encouragement on a cold night.
Today is Nancy's birthday. What she found in this place were people who celebrated that fact.
American democracy, for some, is not about government policies and legislation. Intervention is voluntary cooperation by people in their communities, doing work with their money, their hands and their time.
Today I am grateful for those people.
