Planting the Seed

Planting the Seed


Dad of the Week Award goes to Randy Duke, who spent much of his short time home from Afghanistan marching in front of his son Max' middle school in Texas to protest Max being suspended and otherwise punished for standing up to a bully harassing a special needs student - the increasingly common kind of bullying that's become what many consider a national epidemic. Max is back in school after officials cut short his suspension.

"I left one war and came back to another. This is not about this one bully - this is about the school district not standing up and doing something about it." - Randy Duke


Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
