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

President of an empire - to be continued

Finally my daughter takes me to a party of family! Lesbians and gay men! Sistahs & bros! And I’m happy, happy, happy!

We all talk about Obama, of course. What he’s done, hasn’t done, says he’s done, waiting for him to do, hoping he’ll do.

I talk about one step forward, two steps back. Malika reminds us all that we may have elected Obama but we did elect him president of an empire! This empire. Our empire.
