I AM campaign / and check out the UPDATED LINK

A friend told me that Pagan American Community is also encouraging a post card capaign -an I AM campaign- hey it's all good, in many ways; many of US are struggling with the same big issue;

I am who I am I am my own special creation....
so come take a look give me the hook or the ovation.
It's MY world that I want to take a little pride in
My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Your life is a sham til you can say
Hey world I am what I am! (from La Cage...)

Don't you remember those cool ads I AM an American! , I guess some folks don't get it. It is a way of saying- just that I Am and I count.-
One fanatic complained saying that's God's name- the comment was just really silly- because that would only matter to a fanatic, because even most religious folks would get it, and it would be completely irrelavant to a pagan. God's name could be Howdy Doody- or Santa Claus.

I think this I AM campaign at this point could include everyone who cares enough to speak up- NOT just pagans- because when folks are discriminated against-when bigotry is becoming an acceptable sport (gender, race, ethnicity or religious -gay, racial minority, French, pagan, Muslim) it's just immoral, and should be considered un-American. Remember that entire dutch community who defied the FASCIST, by wearing the symbols for Jewish people on their shirts as a sign of solidarity?

Really it is kind of like the Election Fraud thing too- MY VOTE did NOT count- we were ALL disenfranchised- even republicans. Because it was wrong, and yes if a dem had won and I found out it was unquestionably a FRAUD I would likely even be more angry!

We all should count. Tell them!
Index cards, cut up orange poster board, progressive sites sell them- any post card- take a step beyond virtual. Feel free to use anything on this site if you like.
