Peyton's first day of school was yesterday. She had to wait for me to get off work to go home, so by the time we got there she had to scramble to do her homework in order to beat the power outage. This used to be manageable in a "suck it up, that's life in the CNMI" sort of way, but this is no way to live anymore. I don't even remember there being as many candles in my grandmother's house when I was growing up and those were the good old days. Someone's supposed to be looking after our best interest, using the valuable tax payer dollars we contribute to ensure essential public services to our community, right? How long are they going to take, and how much longer can we just sit aside and trust them to do the right thing?
I am pleading with you to take a stand for a better CNMI and for a better future for each and every one of us. Please join us at the Garapan Fishing Base on Wednesday, September 17, at 5:30PM, at the Garapan Fishing Base. What is so significant about September 17 is that it is "Citizenship Day" in the United States, formerly known as "I am an American" day. It is high time that we we call the attention of President Bush and our leaders in the U.S. Congress and that we demand an end to our deplorable living conditions! Will you join us?
For more please see his blog.
Not sure why I'm complaining today. Maybe it's because I can already feel the frustration coming on. In a few more hours I'll be home. For once, I'd like to enjoy it with my family and not have to worry about what the next hours will have (or won't have) in store for us.
