Mountains are being torn down in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio to fuel the likes of the computer I type on. Fourteen citizens sit on the steps of the Kentucky governor’s office in protest.
I stand in solidarity but don’t stand at all.
I sit. I sit, and I stare at an illuminated screen in search of words to describe my contradiction.
We look to the Egyptians in recent history like heros for overturning a government they could no longer swallow. Mubarak held the reins for 30 years with the support of dollars and politics from complacent Americans.
What would an uprising look like in the United States? What would it take?
