Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Irony at the Mass Service Area

I had to return to the service area to take pictures of these posters hanging just inside the 'beautiful' modern, all glass, steel, marble building that houses the bathrooms, restaurants, and information center for travelers on the Mass Pike.

These two posters hang together, one perched above, the other below. The eagle and flag jump straight into the 'patriotic' heart along with the wretched words striking fear and pride: Operation Safeguard! Be the eyes and ears in the war on terrorism!!!!

Then beneath hangs snapshots of mostly female, mostly brown and black, mostly very young womyn/girls that are missing, lost, in danger of not making it to their 16th birthday.
