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

Ft Morgan Colorado - a beginning

Ft Morgan almost seems like a typical western town except it is extremely clean and the storefronts are painted and neat. The roads are wide for both the 4-laned business strips and the 2 lane residential.

I go in search of wireless internet to three coffee shops, with tons of large pick-up trucks lining the street, filled with hostile white men of all ages chatting, hanging out, eating cholesterol and sipping lousy coffee. I wonder where the hell are all the women?

I spot a couple of shops that sport Spanish signs! I finally find the ‘espresso’ shot that is wireless so here I am – not far from Senator Salazar’s office.

I weep this morning as I read about the 4 u.s. soldiers and the 5 iraqi brothers who have been killed. I can’t help it. Everyone is staring anyway yet they politely ignore my tears.

A white woman finally walks in, briskly ignores me, and grabs a couple of coffees to go. I wonder what the women are doing while the men are hanging out? hmmmm

I wonder if anyone will show up this morning. I talked with a couple of womyn last nite at the hotel, workers, and urged them to come. I wonder what response I will get when I hold up my sign. I already got one finger and one thumbs down. We’ll see!
