AIM has been the monster under the bed-the one lurking in the closet when the lights go out-and like those storied monsters flee when they are turned on.
It is what many are now attempting to do-to turn the lights on, and the more who join the effort the greater the illumination will be.
We are not children to be terrorized by things going bump in the night, or tales of gnomes, trolls, and goblins who feed on those they take hostage.
The blood of giants flows in our veins, of stalwart nations who belonged to rather than merely inhabited the land-of people who not only heard the songs of creation, the land, and all that surrounded us but were a part of those songs and joined in the singing of them.
It is time to sing the forgotten songs again, to raise voices once silenced, to be stalwart and belong rather than inhabit, to reclaim what the gnomes, trolls, and goblins have taken- to turn the lights on for our children.
