Cash Michaels has done a tremendous job with this film. It is a true recording of why we must get active and vote in this midterm election. We have too much to lose.
I haven't read the article but I do know the characeters and either the book or the reviewer are completely off base.
When I met Ken Rose we were participating in a sabbatical program offered by the Z Smith Reynolds Foundation for non-profit workers who REALLY NEEDED A BREAK. Ken had the burden of having overseen the death of one client a month for a stretch of 9 months in a row and all he thought about was the burden it was on others in the system like to guards who spent everyday with the prisoners. Ken Rose broke my heart, I saw him as Atlas carrying a tremendous burden on his shoulders. When I met Ken Rose I was an ardent believer in the death penalty. After that encounter I took up the cause of the Moratorium as a result of the work, passion, commitment of Ken Rose,Paul Green, Charmaine Cooper, Gerda Stein, Jeremy Collins and Scott Holmes I repented and I look forward to the day when they set down the collective burden they have been called to bear and North Carolina repeals the death penalty. They deserved better than this review.
I could not agree with this article more! I blame myself, I thought I would not make my kids work in the fields at the crack of dawn or become day laborers working in construction mixing cement and laying bricks all summer (this was the fate of me and my cousins). No, I spent money making sure they could go to camp and have music and chess lessons and little league, soccer and Ultimate fresbee?
I was once told that we had never gone on a "real vacation" I was so confused these kids had been all over the country and had experiences most adults have never had. But because we took them with us when we had to attend week long conferences at Disney World or Chicago or LA, it wasn't a real vacation because one of us was working.
I guess it is tough being the "virtual poor"
The proposed use of the tax by Wake County is precisely why there needs to be the affordable housing piece added to the bill. Wake county is going to use sales tax money raised out of the pockets of the poor to provide BUS service to the poor and RAIL service to the folks in Cary and North Raleigh. That seems fair.
I find this article appalling. A society is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable citizens.
The history of abuse has to have been reported well before this level of neglect was reached. These folks should be held criminally liable for aiding and abetting rape, criminally abusing the elderly and reckless endangerment
Danielle Adams is a committed environmentalist who while young knows this district well. The Independent is deceiving its readers by Describing Ms. Spann as a Durham Native, the article implies that she has been actively involved as a small farmer for some time. Ms. Spann moved back home after YEARS of living in NYC and is not familiar with our local concerns. In recent in person interviews conducted with the candidates those who attended felt that Danielle's undertanding of the role of the District was far superior to that of her opponent. I encourage folks to check out Danielle's website at www.electdanielleadams.com
