A Long Steady Glow

R.I.P. Edward Kennedy, the liberal lion whose integrity, compassion
and perseverance grew with time. Flaws and all, he devoted himself to
serving others - through health care, education, labor rights and civil
rights, "the unfinished business of America." He fought hard and long.
In the end, he believed "all of us will live on in the future we make."

"For
all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the
cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
