Van Jones, I was able to get close several times and snapped a lot of photos, many of them blurry as usual. Finally Van reaches out to me, shakes my hand and I thanked him for mentioning Native Americans in his speech. I told him that I know Meteor Blades and that MB asked Van to please remember us in his speeches. Van then told me that as a result he has a new comment that he's working on to insert for us and that he'd like to try it out on me. What followed was a typical eloquent comment which I can only clumsily paraphrase. “We talk about Democracy but we need to give credit to the founders of Democracy, the Iroquois. When we talk about Democracy we must credit the teachers.” I told him I loved it and I reiterated, please don't forget about us. He responded that he had every reason to remember us. A wonderful up close and personal moment!
