Reading this article reminds me of the "invisible" people who helped make America the country it is today. I agree with Marty in that we have to make these people visible. It's the only way we can start to make a real contribution to humanity. The non-recognition of people is a terrible mistake that unfortunately has been made over and over.

Nice statement, Carl. Well put. It tells me instantly that you have a good command of the English language, and that you are sympathetic to the goals for answerability and visibility that I share.
I'd like you to continue the dialog with me. You speak of "the people who helped make America the country it is today." That suggests that you are reaching into your apperceptive mass as you write and pulling up memories of other such stories. I could ask you to share that, and you could tell me about Abraham Lincoln or W.E.B. DuBois. And that would be a good dialog and I would like to have it.
But you could also pull up out of your apperceptive mass someone you knew, someone you know should have been visible and was not. I would like that dialog if we could have it.
Your submission is an A. It offers me choices of how to go on with the dialog, and it makes me want to have the dialof. Good work.
love and peace, jeanne
