We spent most of the day with Crystal Zevon, after meeting up at the Railroad Place in Santa Fe. There was so much to see and we sure were grateful to the church for letting us park there because parking was very limited. After Shar, Jimi and I met Crystal we walked to the plaza where we found the most amazing art and food. After veggie pizza and visiting the old Basilica church we parted ways and ventured down (more…)
The “Code Pink” women managed another protest at the DNC, where signs were unfurled and a message was told. That message: Free the Whistle Blowers! & Stop the Drones!
All was good until they found Crystal (who blocked a few views) then escorted her into the lobby area where they then circled her with 8 or more security goons.

Spent a couple days in Denver to participate in active discussion with our new young friends Alex, Kim and Roshan who openly discussed (on camera) our failing education system, too much time being spent on “memory” tests, lack of funding, cuts being made to critical & important programs and just too much emphasis being placed SAT’s instead of providing what’s best for the children. It was an eye opener to hear how we’ve failed a whole generation and then, put them so far in debt some may never be out. The good news is that we are going to implement our own education curriculum right here in Pueblo on the east side. With their help and the help of a few teachers (fed up and ready to be the change) we will start planning, organizing and being the change we want to see!
After a very passionate meeting we met up with Occupy Denver where their GA was being held, lucky for us it falls on Tuesday evenings at the Denver Art Society. There, we engaged in numerous conversations and were fortunate to meet with a couple Occupy CO Springs people. The meeting was great and it was so nice to see familiar faces not seen since Sept. last year. (more…)
