DemDaily: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

December 22, 2016

As Americans prepare for the holidays, and a much-needed rest from a weary year of politics, pundits and protests, many major publications have released their collection of the Year in Pictures.

They are a reminder that, while we have endured many challenges on the home front, they pale in comparison to those who fight for democracy and mere survival worldwide.

May the images also inspire you and remind you of the freedoms we have as U.S. citizens, and our obligation as a country, and as individuals, to keep fighting for what we believe in every day.

For your benefit, DemList has compiled the links and a few highlights for our followers.

Happy Holidays to all!
