106/365: A Voice For The People

Working Families Rally 1 (Rev. Teresa Mithen)

So, here I am in Chicago and, um, a bit out of new downtown material. On this weekend when the Republicans in the House of Representatives passed a budget eviscerating the Medicare program for the elderly and disabled while demanding low taxes for the rich, I decided to use some pictures from the working families' rally last month.

This is Rev. Teresa Danieley, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in St. Louis, who gave the invocation. She is a tireless advocate for economic and racial justice. She's also been a close friend of our daughter since they were 12. They were high school classmates. Teresa officiated at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding four and a half years ago. She wields the light side of the Force.
