A message from the Producer, Barbara McVeigh –
Hi Friends and my beautiful fellow Americans! Why am I peanuts to push this effort? I’ll tell you – when I was 13 years old my father stood up to an American President, the “Hero” of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan. It was the historic 1981 national union strike when 21,000 families (air traffic controllers) nearly took down the American economy in order to make a stand for political honesty. Many of those strikers were Vietnam Vets – a little detail the media chose to ignore. I know the trauma it brings waiting for the FBI to come take your daddy and I lived my life with anger and resentment until I learned there is a better way to do business! Harry Belafonte says it best “put a smile on your face and start dancing in the face of fear, control or domination.” Never give away your spirit! And I dare say, given Jimmy Carter is the “President of Rock ‘n Roll,” it’s time we start a new party in this country, let our hair down and unify with love and raise a toast to Carter who shows us how to live with integrity and lead with vision!
