Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

Stories from the Station: Marines take care of me to be continued

A young Marine, leaving the station, told me today that the Marines are taking good care of him - they've given him drugs for his PTSD. He fought in Iraq for three terms and doesn't want to return for another term but he will if his country needs him. His wife and children? The Marines will take care of them too if he doesn't return this time.
