December Just Posts

justpostdec2006

Welcome to the Just Post Roundtable Pt. 1. One enormous list of posts, some old, some new, that all speak to the same thing - the lifting up of our planet and all that inhabit it.

What tremendous company we keep.

And before you dig in, let me honor the pledge I made and bend your ear a moment about Annika. As you may or may not know from reading about it at Andrea's spot, Annika is in need of a liver. And unbelievably, when transplants are needed parents are often asked to shoulder the costs. Luckily, Annika is connected through COTA who is committed to assisting in raising the costs needed to help Annika get the transplant she needs, but at last report, they still need to raise over $72,000. There are a variety of ways we can get involved, and the link above will help you learn more.

Affordable and adequate health care is a crisis throughout the world, but in countries like the US it is less about a lack of resources and much more about business. It doesn't have to be this way. If you want to learn more about our health care crisis, and the 46 million people (9 million of those are children) who not have adequate coverage, you can go here. I wish I had a solution - but we can continue to write letters, advocate for legislature that promotes accessible healthcare, and vote.

I often feel overwhelmed by such a gigantic systemic problem. So if you have thoughts or solutions or referrals to folks advocating for change please share it. I want to hear about it.

And now allow Mad and I to share the December Just Posts:

Thank you to everyone who participated in our first Just Post Roundtable. The button is yours for the taking - and if you need help, email me and I'll send it to you.

I look forward to seeing what the blog world will write about in January, and am committed to exploring ways to keep the energy and awareness alive as we move throughout 2007. Keep writing. And when you see a post that smacks of Justness send it our way so we can keep shining light in those dark corners.

That's one hell of a list sister. I think i can feel the attention of the planet shifting already.

something blue said...

I love this! Every word is making a difference.

By the way, think good thoughts today for 19 year old Nazanin Fatehi.

KC said...

I know I seem to be thanking you everyday, but thank you for making a difference.

And if you ever run for president, you have my unwavering allegiance. (and a girl's night sleep over at the white house would be grand)

acumamakiki said...

I'll do a better job of participating next month. To be honest, I felt intimidated by this challenge and not sure I could participate (both in the writing or nominating) so please know that I'm here reading and cheering, but feeling a little shy.

Lucia said...

Thanks for making the blog world a better place. For whatever silly reason, I've had trouble following the this 'n' that wedding and just posts. (Maybe I'm just too much a non-conformist, even for blog land.) I do think, though, it's incredibly important to use this venue for social justice for everyone.

Bob said...

the universal health insurance plan being implemented by Massachusetts gives me hope that one day the 46 million uninsured will some day soon be covered. California will be taking up a similar plan sometime soon. Clinton attempted universal health coverage during his first term. It is to our everlasting shame that a country with the best medical institutions in the world and is as rich as we are to have so many people without access to medical care.

Thailand Gal said...

Speaking of universal health care, I'd be curious to know your impressions of Arnold's plan.

Thanks for compiling all of these. It was great to revisit them.


Peace,

~Chani

Momish said...

It truly is a wonder that healthcare should be a luxury and not a given. I will definitely check it out. Great post! Happy month anniversary!

swampwitch said...

Holy Crappola...How many hours did this take? I'm so impressed. I know what I'm doing tomorrow. I think you lined up the moon, sun, planets, and all the stars with this one.

Lillithmother said...

I'm sorry I missed this...

But I plan on becoming involved in this month and the following. I have to say though, that it does become overwhelming...where to start, who to try help, who am I to make a difference with my amateur writing?? I know, I know...it's about the effort isn't it? I'll try Jen...because it's worth it.

moreena said...

Wow. Thank you. What a great bunch of reads, and what an amazing idea.

And, of course, thanks as always to Andrea for all her compassion.
