The New Oil War in Africa (SOAPBOX)

Dear Soapbox Friend,

Today, I have many items of interest to send out to you--as well as posting the information for our new Soapbox show this afternoon.

In case you all think that my life is filled with intense and draining activism, I would like to share with you that I treated myself to an all grandkid day yesterday. We went to the Farmer's Market and donut shop in the morning--later, Mexican food and then the park for a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

It was such a joy for me to walk beside the creek with all four of my grandbabies as we watched the sunset and the Super Moon arise. To top this wonderful day off, we pretended like my daughter's car was a rocket ship and we drove out into the country in search of the Super Moon.

The babies fell asleep in the "rocket ship," and Gigi (what my grandchildren call me) wasn't too far behind after we got home. As activists, advocates, and searchers, we rightly focus on the big picture, but it's also so important to take a little time off to care for ourselves and each other and celebrate the present(s).


Anyhoo, today on the Soapbox, our guest is Ann Garrison who will be talking about the Phony Balony Kony 2012 and the politics of the "New Oil War" in Africa.
