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

Making the connections...

I offer a friend an organic banana and she tells me there are too many carbohydrates in that banana for her to eat.

Really???? I'm thinking. Really??? The only thing I say is that they are the good carbs and your body needs good carbs.

She says something about for a diabetic there are no good carbs.

She is young, maybe in her early 40's, and drinking a can of diet pepsi. Fuckin diet fuckin pepsi.

I want to point out that this banana has more nutrition and is soooooooooooo much better for her than this can of chemicals and fake sugar.

I want to tell her a banana is full of potassium and magnesium, vitamins and fiber and even proteins! While her can is full of poisons that are probably pushing her toward diabetes faster than any little organic banana is capable of.

But I feel like I've already overwhelmed her with information this weekend and so I let this slide but now feel bad I didn't share this info with her.
