*we* are choosing to stay in our fairly remote area and support our local farmers--
and get some chickens--
and make our gardens more productive (it was a bad summer)--
yes, it's scary, but I have lived in another country far away, and while I was there the Viet Nam war ended, and being an American was a scary thing--
(I wasn't in Viet Nam, and I wasn't in the military)--
The U.S. is a huge force and hard to escape, but I commend anyone for trying to leave or staying--
it's a personal choice, like liberty.
it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
