|Heading over the bridge|
I must confess to never having actively participated in a protest. Yet, when I consider my national and religious heritage, both were the result of protest. The United States was born from a protest about taxation without representation. The Lutheran Church was born from the "PROTESTant" movement. This was launched when Martin Luther nailed 95 Thesis to a church door, upset by many of the things he saw occurring within the Catholic Church.
With tight budgets and food shortages occurring in many places throughout the world, it seems things are going to be stressful for some time to come. We will all need to consider our personal and national priorities in this difficult time.

This is a good time to write letters to your legislative officials and yes, perhaps, even get out and protest those things which you feel are unjust. Perhaps you might even feel called to the role of a prophet, who's job it is to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Come to think of it, isn't that what a just tax system does for society too?
