Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
"It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who
died in defense of our country in wars far away. The
imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in
our mind as old and wise. We see them as something
like the Founding Fathers, grave and gray-haired.
But most of them were boys when they died, they gave
up two lives -- the one they were living and the one
they would have lived. When they died, they gave up
their chance to be husbands and fathers and
grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be
revered old men. They gave up everything for their
county, for us. All we can do is remember."
