To "let sleeping dogs lie" is to avoid restarting old conflicts. Revisiting an old conflict is like waking a sleeping dog; we are better not to do it.
Oh yeah, well I say 'Hell No' too. The time has finally come to stand up and be counted among the half a million mothers who had their babies taken from them for no other reason then the fact that they were young and unwed during the EMS (Era of Mass Surrenders*TM). We were forsaken by our families, the church, the social workers and the system. Our civil rights were violated and we were robbed of our children. We were told to get on with our lives as our 'shameful secrets' were conviently and systematically swept under the rug. And that is where the sleeping dog has been lying for decades.
No ~ today the sound of our silence will be replaced with a loud roar of indigntion and resolve. Our day has been a long time coming, but it is indeed coming.
