Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant
Rosato, a native of Bay St. Louis—ground zero for Katrina’s devastation, launched her blog in May 2007 to express her dismay and provide detailed, poignant, on-the-ground accounts of what the people of the Gulf Coast are still experiencing nearly two years after Katrina’s devastation. She is committed to using her blog to reinvigorate the discussion and generate a renewed national sense of purpose to efficiently and effectively rebuild the area.
While the “A.M” of A.M. in the Morning! stands for its author, Ana Maria, “A.M.” also stand for “adult maturity.” In Ana Maria’s words, “What is so invigorating in today’s political climate is that the progressive political community understands full well that being informed AND taking appropriate, effective action—even when we don’t feel like it—is what makes things move inside the legislative and electoral arenas in directions that we desire. We understand that we have to participate in the political arena. We have to focus on what we desire, invest our time, energy, and resources into what we desire, and we are doing just that. This is about civic participation which is one of the highest means of displaying our patriotism, political maturity, and communal sophistication.”
The goal of A.M. in the Morning! is simple. Provide deeply caring Americans with information on what life is really like here in Katrina Land. Then A.M. in the Morning! strategically directs the outpouring of disgust and outrage, energy and attention on what will make a political difference to the people and small businesses that want to return to living life fully and vibrantly.
A.M. in the Morning! provides phone scripts and email letters as well as the names, email addresses and phone numbers of those she targets be they elected officials, bureaucrats, corporate leaders, or the media. By shining a spotlight on the ongoing plight of the Gulf Coast, A.M. in the Morning! hopes to be a cog in the wheel that spurs action.
