Hello, world. This is Wren.

I'm Wren. I'm an American, a disgruntled Democrat, a veteran, a Mom, a wife, an artist and a journalist, a non-believer. I've never been political. But I can't sit silent and watch while America is taken over by the religious right and our democracy and great Constitution are shredded away by inches.
I'm deeply worried about America. I don't want to see the day come when we find ourselves, by virtue of our silence, powerless subjects of an imperial theocracy. I have a lot of questions and not much in the way of answers. But I have a sharp, questing mind and increasingly, feel compelled to speak out.
And so, I'll blog. I hope to get a good conversation going here so that perhaps, between us, we can find our way home.

Bonjour, Wren! I, too, am deeply concerned about the political (and other) state of affairs in the U.S. So, I appreciate your boldness and your experience. I've been thinking about the "democrat" and "republican" scenes a lot lately. Perplexing, polarizing. How do we get things done in this country? Good things. Grassroots seems to be the best approach at present. I just read about the 32 year old responsible for organizing the movement to overthrow Milosovec. Inspiring. He is a gamer, too, and is actually in the middle of designing a game for peaceful protest and political organization. This is one game I will buy and play.
