When I see Cheney and (Rinfield) Rumsfeld, and W on TV, I want to scream and throw up all at once. The deep wound these men have inflicted upon our nation and world is so deep we are all still bleeding from it. Nothing they have done since 911 has even remotely come close to defending us against so-called, terror. Rather, they have terrorized us more than a hundred 911’s. They have planted the seeds of the destruction of our nation with their greed and recklessness. Now we are reaping the harvest of economic ruin and global disrespect.

If we had used the energy and treasure of the last ten years to help remedy the Global Warming we now see, what a different world we could have made. What a respected nation we would have been. If we had used our energy and treasure to reduce the unnatural fear and blindness created by the NRA, what a sane nation we would have become.

I know others have felt this, but are not allowed to say it out loud. What these men have done has destroyed a generation of young men and women who are so damaged, they came home only to commit suicide for what they knew was a bloody murderous task they could not live with after coming out of the drug induced coma they had all been put in. It was Viet Nam all over again.

WHY HAVE WE NOT SAID IT. I remember screaming, NOT IN MY NAME at the outset of the genocide venture only to be called unpatriotic, traitor or worse. Now those words are used to quiet any voice that wants gun control and sensible regulation that would help quail the murder of our children and others who find themselves rattling the nerves of a “stand your ground” citizen.

It sounds like the powers that be have lost their minds. Everything that would lift us up as a nation is rejected, while everything that would drag us deeper into the rabbit hole is held up like a banner of honor. If you think about it, it is as if someone with a lot of power has deliberately set out to destroy us as a nation.

“Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do”. This prayer is so appropriate and one we all should be praying for the world leaders who are complicit in this. They all have blood on their hands. While they accuse others of being terrorists, they are terrorizing us.

I know there is an answer to this that they have overlooked. While they tout their “religious” beliefs like a get-out-of-jail-free card, we the people can begin to “humble ourselves and pray”. Not in any particular way, but pray, meditate, chant, zone out or what ever we chose to touch that higher place of sanity and peace. We need to deliberately saturate the higher realms with our petitions so greatly that we know we have been heard and answered. And we need not to ever stop, because what has been done to our children, our hearts and minds and our economy began with no obvious thought to the consequences of their actions.

Let this be how we answer this dilemma. Let this be the answer to our feeling of helplessness. This is the true power. Power that doesn’t take money to demonstrate. We can still be a force for peace and love. We can still make a difference in our world. We can move heaven with our collective positive energy of prayer and meditation. We have to, there is nothing else between us and the wolves at the gate but this. We can be the ones we’ve been waiting for. Lets start today.

Beauty in unexpected places

When I originally began this Blog, I thought it was for the children books I’ve written. Now, after learning to function in this inter- world with little skill and perservierence, I have learned l several things : write what you know and use lots of pictures. However, I now also realize though I have children and grandchildren, this Blog has not been for them or the books. This Blogs’s for me. Everything I know for sure about “The World as We Know it”.
I would like to think having stepped into this darkness with little or no information that I may at least shine some light for someone else by sharing what has and has not worked for me. I realize trying to feed a fish to hungry people only fills their belly’s for a short while. Maybe what I’ve learned and know for sure will help create some fishermen who will lower their own lines into the dark waters and catch even bigger fish than I was able to. Since I’ve lived for six decades plus I would like to think I have something to pass on to the next generation of beings reaching out into the darkness with their own lights.
The things I know for sure are not things you can learn from books, they are only learned experiences I’ve had. Someone may say don’t spank a child because it’s a form of abuse and doesn’t reinforce good behavior. I will tell you what spanking a child will do to you. I will tell you exactly what depression feels, tastes, and looks like. What it’s like to love and be loved by someone. What it feels like to not be loved at all. How being lonely can make you do crazy things and being happy can take you completely out of whatever dark funk you find yourself in. I can tell you the difference in marrying for love or marrying for money, well, marring for convenience. How it feels to have your child hate you and how it feels to have your child self destruct. How meditation changes you.
I can only write what I know and I know all these things and a little more but I first wanted to give you my bona Fides. Who knows where we’ll go from here. I hope you will go with me.
