September 22nd- Let’s go with another National Day … because this is really important.  It’s National Public Lands Day and the current administration has the Public Lands in its target scope – wanting to sell them off for profit to corporations. They are moving endangered animals on Public Land of the Endangered list and onto hunting lists.

Poets are history’s witnesses. And their consciousness – we need to use our voices to be activists.

Sept 22nd’s prompt is “I’m looking for a place ” or alternatively  “National Public Lands Day”
