This short video posted by Finn Ryan is so beautiful in its simplicity and reason that I felt I had to pass it on. These are some of the people who have been standing at the State Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin protesting Gov. Scott Walker's union-busting legislation. There's no name-calling, no angry slurs, no asking for anything more than the right to be fairly heard. If you hear "union" and automatically think "corruption" or "entitlement" or "overpaid thugs" or "socialists," please, just watch. These people are your neighbors, your friends, your co-workers, not "those people." They are us.

Pass it on.
