Mudflats nails it....Snippet Here:
"Bravery is not wearing a t-shirt with a gun, carrying a flag with a snake, and screaming while someone is trying to to tell people how to contact their elected representatives what they think. Bravery is not shouting accusations at sick people. Bravery is not stopping discourse. That is cowardice and ignorance and bullying. That is what you do when you know that in rational discourse you will lose.
Bravery is standing up in the face of anger and speaking your story, telling people how to become engaged with their democracy, and demanding that the government listen to the voice of the majority of Americans, not just the bullies."
