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

u.s.ofa. soldiers killing u.s.ofa. police...

Interesting it is soldiers, trained by the u.s. military how 2 kill & torture 'other' people, are killing police officers, who are also trained & certainly armed by the u.s. military 2 kill & torture our own people.

And both these young soldiers were "recruited" directly out of high school - and more likely FROM high school, entered the military when they were 18 years old, most likely not reading the small print that proclaimed them bound to the military for EIGHT years, when they thought they were signing up for TWO years. They were both sent to either Iraq or Afghanistan and both after their 2 year stint was up.

This is what we're training our youth to do and become.
