• They are heroes. And there are many people just like them, still standing up for what's right.

    I'll be honest -- I hadn't considered writing about this experience at all until I posted it as a diary on Kos earlier this week. The response, frankly, overwhelmed me, and several people mentioned the same thing. Delving into my own memories about it has refreshed a lot of my thoughts and feelings at the time, as well as how they've changed as I've gotten older and in light of the world we now face. That, combined with the multitude of absolutely amazing and considered responses I received -- many from union people themselves -- it's inspired me to consider taking this further. (Including posting in other communities, as many of the commenters suggested.) So I guess you could say I'm testing the waters a bit to see if it's something I should consider more seriously.
