A Season to Share (open thread)

As 2011 comes to an end, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, a wonderful new year, and an invigorating holiday season. As we celebrate, it should be a time not just for consuming, but for sharing and giving. Whether you can give time or money, help a cause near and dear to your heart. Whether you can help a neighbor or the local food bank, please do whatever you can.

The next year holds a lot for us, in terms of the direction of this country. We must re-elect the President, return the House to Democratic hands, and expanding the Democratic majority in the Senate. This year will be our time to turn back the Tea Party tide and move our country to a more progressive direction with President Obama at the helm. Right now is the time to rest and enjoy the holidays with your family and friends, but get ready for a big fight. The GOP won't let this be easy, and we won't have much help from some on "our" side. But then, WE are the ones we've been waiting for.

Yes. We. Can. Again.

Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
