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

If she can do that, so can I?

This is more about thank yous!

I share with you what I'm doing not because I want you to thank me, but because I want you to say "Hey, I know that womon! If she can do that, so can I!!!"

I'm trying to point out that even myself who does work hard, I am as culpable as we all are for the state of our country and community. For the conditions of violence we're perpetuating around the world and on our soil.

Culpable not because we pull the trigger or fly the bomber - or even because we strive for the goods provided by war, or send our loved ones to be cannon fodder or pay our taxes, work in the factories, continue to seek more knowing so many have so much less etc.

But because we are part of the humans that make up this country that is destroying life, & the humans that make up this world that is being destroyed.

No matter how cleverly & thoroughly we've been directed else ways, we HAVE to be responsible for the conditions of humans & all life, especially for those against whom our powerful always have & continue 2 exploit & murder - including our Mother Earth. 

I know we're just the 'little people' but we MUST recognize our role in swallowing, continuing & perpetuating this amerikkkan nitemare. & our role in ending it.

We the 'little people' are the ONLY ones who can, who must stop it. All life on this planet depends on us.
