Here is an excerpt from Michael Moore's new book that comes out today. I know that I will be buying it and I encourage you to do the same. You can read more at the World Peace Journal.
"Why was I still alive? For more than a year there had been threats, intimidation, harassment and even assaults in broad daylight. It was the first year of the Iraq war, and I was told by a top security expert (who is often used by the federal government for assassination prevention) that "there is no one in America other than President Bush who is in more danger than you".*
It makes me sad what we, as humans, do with the truth. Most people run from it, bury it, or even destroy it but so few tell it. Those brave few who tell it are usually ostracized, threatened, and yes even hurt or killed. The truth is hard and sometimes ugly. The truth is painful and can be something to fear. It's also necessary and must be told!
"If we give in to the terrorists, the terrorists win."
~George W. Bush
Thank you Michael Moore for not letting the terrorists win!
