don't miss the boat

The eloquent Marian Wright Edelman is a moving speech at the One Nation Working Together rally in Washington DC. The broken school system is wasting our human capital, our children, but Ms. Edelman says it much better than I. A favorite part of the speech:
Lesson six—almost done—remember that the Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic was built by professionals. Use your citizen power, your vote, to wrest our ship of state from that small group of experts and powerful and greedy corporate pirates who recklessly jeopardized all of our lives for personal gain. Feel your own power. Use your own power. Don’t rely on experts.
