Hump Day Hmm January 23, 2008: Big Pink Elephant---The Most Important Cultural Issue

Today is Hump Day.

The topic is "January 23 --- Tell us about the most important cultural issue from your perspective. Is it something that ought to be emphasized more in politics? Is it a political issue? Why or why not? Does it affect how you vote?"

I got so busy with my spectacular pity party yesterday---and oh it was a bash, let me tell you; also, many thanks for all the support---I forgot to put up a reminder. I can only hope you are better organized than I am and took note when I announced the topics at the beginning of the month and in the past weeks.

Please remember you can create a new post for this, or can link to a post you already wrote at any time in the past.

As a heads-up, next week's topic is about a key/pivotol moment in your childhood or growing up years, why it was important, and how you carry it with you. You are welcome to suggest topic ideas any time.

I've added in my topic as a link (below) like the rest of you. Looking forward to all submissions.

JP, I somehow hope this day looks better to you. The issue that most frequently bugs me is how separate we somehow find ourselves from humanity at large. Okay, but you know how small and crowded my brain is, so I posted a meme today.

The increasing gap between the haves and the have nots.

I freeze up in the face of these big words. But can't wait to read yours.

It didn't even occur to me to add my post to this week's Hmmm. Thanks for the suggestion. I'd love to hear more people chime in on the issue of contraception.

I think I am way too late for this week, but thanks for inviting me to contribute. I will remember to check for the topic and try to participate in the future! I would have loved to have added something to this one... given that it always seems I have a lot to say about this topic!

This is my first time participating, and my whole house has been knocked out by an utterly vicious flu bug - so I took the easy way and linked to something already written. After I posted I thought of another post that kind of fits the bill for me too.

The first post I liked to is about connection and awareness, the second about compassion. For me these are both parts of the same issue - the disconnect between individuals in our society, and what happens when we forget to truly connect with one another.
