When you realize that the darkness is beginning to turned around and that even though the light is dim we are at the beginning of a new time, and when you realize that you yourself have played a key role in defending truth and beauty, and have tried to your utmost to turn things around, it is time to celebrate.

It has only been a few years ago that I first got an article on opednews.com It was for me so incredible I shook with the excitement of it. Today I need to take a break from it all. But for all that I am deeply grateful for the adventure that writing for opednews.com has been.

I have been involved with OEN for almost ten years. It was not only one of the first progressive news sites it is one of the purest. Without mentioning any names, many sites which were once progressive have devolved to sensationalist news that is neither progressive or necessary to know. In their greedy quest for clicks they sink to levels that we used to associate with tabloid journalism. This includes sexual mongering, "believe it or not" news, "watch" stories and coverage of invective between politicians. It is an insult to the intelligence and our politics. OEN has resisted this trend
