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

Midnite driving thru North Carolina

I'm trying to make it to Greensboro before Sunday a.m. so I'll have time to spend with a sistah compañera I'm looking forward to visiting there so I'm driving east in the middle of the night on I40.

This is only a 2 lane interstate freeway with very little traffic on it - maybe a car every 5 or 10 minutes but at least 5 cars have pulled over to the shoulder and allowed me to pass them, before pulling back onto the highway to hover behind me with their bright lights on.

I'm thrilled they are taking the time to read everything - thrill tinged with a little high alert notice as I keep my cell phone close and prepare for danger.

But every single car and truck that takes the time to re-read the back of my truck, eventually pulls out from behind me and passes silently into the pitch black night. No reactions, no speeding off angrily, no blasting  horns or honking affably in solidarity. Nothing.
