Links To The Other Beautiful America

On this 4th of July, my two blogs, “Like It Matters” and “Because It Matters” have reached a total of 20,000 hits!. It is my pleasure to talk about people I have written about in the 6 years of blogging. I do that in depth in the simultaneously posted “Because It Matters” Post “The Other Beautiful America ”  In this article, I’m posting the links to  the organizations, artists, etc. None of this is paid advertising. They are just good people I thought you should know about.
