Quote of the Day 11.09.07

I used to think we struggle some years, we win and then it’s over. But I realize this planet is so twisted and raped and violated, that it will take lifetimes to make this place livable, to deal with the needs of people. For me, my lifestyle has to always incorporate struggle, that revolution is not around the corner, that I’m in this for the long haul.
