I DO applaud these kids. They really did save a wonderful thing from almost certain destruction. Its awesome.
Want to keep it going? Make sure these guys arent cut?
I would like to respectfully offer a suggestion:
Lose the dreads and bongos.
Go to school, get a job, something. Become as knowledgeable and powerful as those you are fighting.
I'm just saying NO ONE takes a white dreadlocked tie-died kid seriously. O.K.? Get. Over. It.
That time has passed. I know. I'M a proud 'hippie'! (Yes, from the 60's.)
'Live' like someone on the 'other side' for a while! Think of what you will learn to help you.
But the image of dready moms with the kids eating dirt under an overpass in NOT how to win the public's support.
Sorry-just had to say that.
