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

Camp Hope and Yes We CAN Help Obama...

... CHANGE Direction!

Which is what I painted on my truck today, as I get ready to head out of town on my Camp Hope tour across the country.

We have elected Obama and I felt the hope surging across the nation when I drove from Atlanta to California the end of November. I also felt the fury of white males driving pick up trucks in Texas mostly.

I want to focus on that hope and, inspired by the CodePINK chapter in Chicago, I will attempt to set up "Camp Hope" in the cities and towns I travel through, asking folks to bring their hope for our nation this upcoming year. I will take these hopes to Chicago, and then on to D.C.

why i'm going to the inauguration ... to be continued

i'm coming to the inauguration because i HOPE we can help obama CHANGE direction! From Iraq to the USA, NOT Afghanistan.

i am almost 60 years old and i have worked my hardest to eliminate racism on all levels, personally, socially, institutionally, nationally - everywhere.

i want the election of obama to be a blow to right-wing fascism, militarism, and fundamentalism, not just racism.

i want to be the anti-war voice, pro-peace voice in washington d.c. this january 20th. i want this voice to be the LOUDEST voice ever.
