Oh What A Falling Off Was There

Abby Zimet


It's been a tough year. High hopes turned to hard times, failed
promises, grave disappointments and, like the sign says, a lack of
action on matters that require it - gay rights, health care, climate
change, financial reform, torture, Gitmo, Gaza, Afghanistan. Yes we can
do better; perhaps, this year, we will. Happy New Year.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
