Pilgrims In A Pilgrim Country


Charles Pierce on our gathering together to make of ourselves a commonwealth of our families and our political beliefs, all pilgrims in a democracy "that in many ways remains a goal rather than a reality." Happy Thanksgiving.

"Act as if ye had faith, the old Scripture tells us, and faith shall be given to you. A prayer for all our thanksgivings, a prayer for our nation, yet a'borning still, in the hearts of its people."

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
