The 10/12/13 Joy Jar

12 Oct

Bruce Horowitz wrote in the USA Today article, Starbucks petition takes on government shutdown:

The nation’s coffee kingpin will become the weekend headquarters for folks who want to sign petitions that encourage lawmakers to reopen the government and reach a budget deal…. The petition asks officials to:
• Reopen the government.
• Pay our national debts on time.
• Pass a long-term budget deal by the end of 2013.
Consumers also will be able to sign digitally beginning Friday at or “like” the petition’s Facebook post, which will count as a signature to the petition.

Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is ‘people power.’

 have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which
