We Will Rebuild

Abby Zimet

More Fun On the Internet: Within 15 minutes of last night's 4.5 magnitude earthquake in Maine - which slightly shook all our houses at dinnertime - an enterprising wise-acre had put up an "I Survived the New England Earthquake" Facebook page, which sported terrific graphics stolen, it's true, from tacky 9/11 iconography. Within the hour it had 45,000 likes. Now it's over 90,000. Ah, the human spirit.

"We are united in our grief, but together we are strong."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
