On the fight to close the gap

image

We are engaged in a battle
to define the worth of human life…

image

In a land that defines itself as the best of everything
The question is whether or not
access to that best
need be an artifact of position,
or wealth or material circumstances,
of social standing and class.

image

In a land where no one need die of untreated illness
or sickness
Can we live in such a way that the benefits
of our knowledge and science
be a gift to all our people or
must it be rationed only to those
who meet some financial criteria or position?

image

The question is whether or not
some lives are disposable,
that people can cost too much.

image

And if people cost too much
what value, what true value
do we hold any life?

image

It is a question
not of what we can do,
or what we can afford,
but of who we are and
who we can become.

image

In times increasingly mean,
it is ultimately a question not
of what we can survive,
But rather in the final measure
can we survive ourselves?

image

Sickness and death know no political season

image

They have no legislative session

image

Raise your voice today

image

Tell your legislator it is time

image

Long long past time

image

Close the coverage gap
LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND
