Let them eat our words!
This image of Marie Antoinette is meant to go to bloggers who have something to say, who tell the truth. Diva Jood, one of the best word-smiths I know, received it from Utah Savage--another giant among truth tellers. Diva passed it to me. I could not be better honored, for I would die happy if I were regarded as one who spoke truth. Thank you, Diva. This is the best award ever.
We are to pass this on to others who tell the truth. Brevity is the soul of wit. I pass Marie to:
* James at An Average American Patriot. He is anything but your average patriot. Would that I had his zeal for truth. Or even just a portion of it.
* Enigma at Watergate Summer. She is monumental among bloggers. With energy which appears limitless, Enigma commits herself to telling the truth of our U.S. reality--its beauty and its dark side.
* The Poetryman and his team at The Peace Tree. Mark and the group wield truth unrelentingly to wage peace. Peace begins with justice. They write it so well: with poetry and in prose--as well as in video and Photoshop.
*Renegade Eye. A landmark among my blogging reads. His voice speaks a socialist truth.
*SueJ at Nailing Jello to the Wall. Consistently one of my favorite blogs. Great insight. Well written. So much truth: personal, social and political.
Let us all be about truth. We are privileged with education. With access to technology. With enough wealth to have the equipment to speak our truth to the world. Be a voice for the poor. Speak your truth loud and proud. And as for Marie Antoinette, we will not eat her cake. Rather, we will insist that she and her ilk instead swallow our words of truth.
Careful, oh ye Rich and Powerful--do not choke on them.
