For most of my life I have felt like one of the little people, a minority from a tough neighborhood. Bill Moyers spoke of a position that people like me should have in the political process. I wish that I had been listening. Instead I got infected by voices of criminal discontent. I know where my poor citizenry originated.
What I like so much about Bill Moyers when he was alive was that he showed me how to think realistically and react productively to the things that are wrong within the system. I wish that my uncles had taught me how to think realistically and react productively to life's problems when I was young. If they had, my potential would have taken me much farther. Heck, in an alternate version I might have even run for office and been interviewed by Bill Moyers for what I was doing to improve my neighborhood.
