For Whom The Bell Tolls

Son,

No demographic is an island, intire of it self; every demographic is a piece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Political Parties, American is the less, as well as if a promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde,; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

A paraphrasing of John Donne.

The application of this Welsh poem is appropriate for the climate of politics of 2008 America. Discrimination by demographic is done. We are America – and we will stand together. No demographic left behind.
