Ever since the election t's been hard to get away from feelings of despair, gloom, futility, and just plain negativeness on the part of community workers, street people, students, and rainbow people in general. It's as if people believe the tissue of horseshit we've been dumped with, thinking that we'll never be able to cause the changes we know are so necessary to people's very survival. To us, here at the SUN, the Nixon Agnew re-election shows only a blatant reminder of how much work we have to do, how much more organized we have to get to bring people together to créate the new life style, politics, and economie system so many people dream of every day. The Vietnamese people are the ever shining brighter example we have to face. The worst bombing strikes ever to take place during the whole war have been since the election, the election that promised puace with doves all over Time and New, and actually halted the war for some days to insure victory for Dr. Doom and his Death Machine. What a ruse. Tens of sands of tons of bombs falling.falling, the rain of terror for so many years on beautiful people and land we can't hardly think about t. In Vietnam Ngo Vinh Long wrote: "On this land Where each blade of grass is human hair Each foot of soil is human flesh Where it rains blood Hail bones Life must flower" The spirit and will of a people for peace índ self-determination is proving time and sgain to be the strongest motivating force an the planet. We have to gain sight of the hat fact, take hold of it. and figure out tow that relates to our every day lives. Two great lessons we can learn clearly from the Vietnamese people are the lessons of Unity and Perserverance. We know that the Tribal Council and the potential Human Rights Party are two organizations here n Ann Arbor working to bring people together to créate wholp new ways of organizing our community to take care of our needs and problems. We hope people will check these things out and keep in touch. For the Vietnamese there is nothing else but to fight, every day, all their lives, for many centuries. Their perserverance is astounding, and they still smile, and laugh and sing. In Ann Arbor we have begun to understand ourselves as a people, and some killer things are happening. All we have to look forward to is what we créate together.
