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

50th Anniversary March on Washington - to be continued

It is SOOOOOOOO deeply wonderful to be back in D.C. with a bunch of Black folks, instead of the bunches of white folks I'd been coming with over the past decade!~!

The energy here is vibrant, determined, proud and satisfied yet knowing the whole, true picture.

I went to the opening ceremony and heard folks recount their stories, their experiences, especially from 50 years ago and also their hopes for today. It was quite moving and just terribly beautiful - the courage, the empowerment, the hope they shared, they inspired throughout the nation and the decades.
