P.s. from the last post
Today I had the honor of speaking with Rosie Olson and Karen Johnson, live on Blog Talk Radio. Rosie is the host, and her warm personality made me feel as though we were friends in the same room. This helped with my initial shyness, although the program aired live and captures a lot of my “ohs, ums, and ahs.”
Because it was more like a conversation than an interview, I didn’t say a lot of things I wish I had. About how wonderful and generous everyone has been. See, I felt shy about going on and on about me.
It was really an honor to speak with two insightful, experienced women and I wish Karen Johnson had spoken more, as she lives what I’m on the road doing. She is a wise woman, the MidWest Regional Coordinator for the Department of Peace. The DOP is legislation that must be passed and I encourage everyone to read more about it through the Peace Alliance website.
Karen wrote me back a few months ago, one of the few Peace organizations to do so-not only encouraging me, but notifying her contacts about the ride. This show of solidarity was impressive, as I have sadly seen little of it in the Peace, specifically anti-war movement.
Among many other things, I discuss my recent disenchantment with the liberal 60’s in this show. It is an hour and a half long. Go on, turn up the speakers and listen while you surf the web. Thanks to Rosie and Karen for making my first live interview so comfortable.
