The US Represented Weekly Update

sunrise from spaceHello USR members and guests,

As impulsive as New Year’s resolutions tend to be, they do sometimes reflect a serious desire to actualize achievable goals, so in this spirit, we should mention that we will continue to publish all thoughtful, current, and well-composed works in different mediums that will delight and inform our audience. US Represented will always stand for and defend free speech and creative expression. This is why most of our members are objective enough to examine varying viewpoints respectfully and objectively while still maintaining their own notions of reason and integrity, which is precisely what makes you special. It’s why we’re sharing this conversation right now. The USR staff will also continue upgrading the site to make it more attractive and user-friendly.

We’ve published some interesting works over the past week. In “The XX Prize,” Jerome Parent proposes that to end the abortion debate, someone should initiate a highly publicized contest that would lead to the invention of an abortion kit that women could use safely in the privacy of their own homes. Eric Stephenson adds to the weekly offerings by describing what it’s like to receive “An Intuitive Healing.” He also overviews one of the world’s most unique bodies of water in “Montezuma Well.” In “Trash Talk,” Ben Selfridge of Pueblo, Colorado discusses the need for more American communities to adopt intelligent recycling strategies and how to go about doing so. To “One Good Paragraph,” we added a Joseph Campbell conversation that describes Schopenhauer’s vision of how will makes life seem like one great dream of a single dreamer. Finally, we included a few lines from “Wooden Ships” by Crosby, Stills, and Nash, accompanied by a picture of a young girl that sums up the message poignantly.

As always, thank you for being here, and we’ll talk to you soon.
