We Will Rebuild

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."

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. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
