VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL
~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~
Capt. Chesley Sullenberger
MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!
I was always impressed by this American human being.
I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.
For sure, I watched the movie.
Yet, last night, as I watched him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.
His gravitas is impressive.
Take a look!
~The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell~
The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.
“This is not the America I know and love.
We’re better than this.”
The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.
“We cannot wait for someone to save us.
We must do it ourselves.
This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.
Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”
“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.
“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”
