Spread the Word About HR4170!

As you may already be aware, today is “1-T Day” – the estimated date on which student loan debt will officially hit a mind-boggling ONE TRILLION DOLLARS.  As a result, hundreds of organizations and individuals are participating in a National Day of Action to mark this extremely important, highly disturbing milestone.

To that end, ForgiveStudentLoanDebt.com has, once again, collaborated with Kyle McCarthy, Founder of OccupyStudentDebt.com, as well as LoanReformNow’s RaeAnn Roca, to create a new website:


As our petition in favor of The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 quickly approaches our goal of one million signatures, no doubt you’ll be called upon by friends, family and co-workers to defend your support of the bill.  HR4170.com is intended to be your one-stop destination for all things related to this groundbreaking bill.

Not only does the new site provide easy-to-navigate links for you to use to help spread the word and raise awareness about the bill, but it also contains a whole host of resources to help sharpen your arguments, explain why this bill is needed and how it will help to jumpstart our floundering economy.

Please join millions of others across the country participating in today’s National Day of Action by visiting HR4170.com and start spreading the word!

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Together, we’re going to fundamentally change the way in which we pay for higher education in America – but it’s going to take some work, so let’s get started!

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 116


Rest now sweet child,
don’t be scared,
stay here for a while.
Tired, lonely and sad,
Hush, hush now.
I have you.
I know you.

Rest now my sweet child,
take this love I give,
make it worth your while.
You don’t have to do another thing,
no more proving yourself to me,
stop working so hard,
you don’t have to have to any more.
Rest now my sweet child,
my love for you never runs out.


Everything about you-concerns me.
I know whom you love.
I know your secret longings.
I know every little detail.
I know why you laugh,
when you really want to cry.
Stay here and rest a while.
Hush hush now,
you are my sweet child.
