I got invited via Facebook to a candlelight vigil for healthcare this weekend in Columbus. ProgressOhio is spreading the message and it’s a good one:
This event will be an opportunity to reflect on the spiritual roots of our work to support health care reform ? highlighting the moral aspects of the issue, and remembering the real-life consequences of our broken health care system. We will demonstrate the depth and breadth of public support for a health care future that includes everyone and works well for all of us.
I think as we’ve watched this healthcare debate go from heated to batshit crazy, it’s a good idea to stop and remember why we are doing it in the first place. It’s a moral imperative to ensure all of our citizens have good healthcare. We forget all too easily that we should be taking care of one another. This event will be a good way to help us remember the old adage “you are your brother’s keeper”.
