I am a resident of Wisconsin, and have been for ten years.
I have been attending the protests almost every day since February 15. I have been there, I have taken pictures, I have talked to the participants. I have been amazed and inspired by the passionate, creative, energetic and (most of all) peaceful people I have had the chance to meet. What I read and see in the media does not reflect what I have participated in. Like many others, I am sure, I have taken to the internet to combat this. I want the world to know what is happening here. I want the world to hear our voices.
Prior to February 15, I was politically aware. Now, I am politically active. There are thousands more like me who never thought they would be political activists. But, now we are working to make sure that the voice of Wisconsin is heard.
Prior to February 15, I was a resident of Wisconsin. Now, I am a reluctant revolutionary and, apparently, despite my best intentions, a blogger.
I am also keeping a flickr page with all of my images of the protests at:
"...and then in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and shew riches
Ready to drop vpon me, that when I wak'd
I cri'de to dreame againe."
