I am a pretty conservative girl and tend to not push my views on those of you in my circles. I don't have bumper stickers on my vehicles to save whirled peas or baby snails so when I joined a march on Saturday I felt a bit out of my realm.
After a few folks took their turn broadcasting their message there was a young man reminding us that we are law-abiding citizens, we will obey all traffic lights and we will not cause any problems. We followed the leader with the bull horn from the park and took to the sidewalk on our way to the county courthouse.
Since we have the fancy dvr, my sweetie recorded all the local channels to see if our cause had made the news. One little blip on one station and nothing to tell how this message was being played this day in 52 countries and 436 cities.
So, did you hear about it?

Might be time to for us all to get involved. I am not saying we should all go out and machete a field of corn. Please. Use your voice in the market place. Read the label. Call your congressman and tell them you want your food products labeled if they contain GMO ingredients. Better yet, grow your own from non-GMO seeds. And tell at least one other person what you have learned.
Have you joined the non-GMO movement?
