Great heart to see great wisdom...

It takes a person of great heart to see…the wisdom the elders have to offer, and so serve them out of gratitude for the life they have passed on to us.

I remain an optimist. Not that there is any evidence that I can give that right is going to prosper, but because of my unflinching faith that right mush prosper in the end.

Is Peace Possible in a ...

Ron Alexander Part of me wishes I would just sail away, like I did when NiXon was president and not listen to news, or read newspapers. I missed the whole Watergate thing, living a simple self-sufficient life in the tropics around mostly or lightly uninhabited islands. This was after my Brother was killed in Vietnam, and I was so angry at NiXon for keeping us in the war after promising peace to get elected.



Donna Cannon Peace be still.
Silence, the altar of Spirit. 
Allow God to move you.🍃

If we ask God, He promises us HIS peace "that passes understanding"!
Amen. 

God’s peace always, brother friend. ðŸŒº♥️
Be Good. 
Do good.
Manage
Political nightmare, I meditated, prayed to free myself of negative thoughts going around in my mind. Is peace possible now?

K.I.S.S.

Grant me daily the grace of gratitude, to be thankful for all my many gifts, and so be freed from artificial needs, that I might lead a joyful, simple life.

Direct Link to King Alexander's righteous threat to 45

Patricia Malone: Finally a ray of hope for justice. I was wondering if other Countries could help us since our Justice Department is run by a life long bigot with a history of taking away human rights from women and people of color and now children and babies.

Crime against Humanity

En maar volhouden dat het door Ivanka komt …
 But the international community has been especially outspoken in its opposition to this administration’s visibly inhumane agenda, including Willem-Alexander Claus George Ferdinand, King of the Netherlands, who posted a less-than-subtle threat to a president vying for his spot as one of the cruelest world leaders in this century.!
Trump may continue to blame everyone but himself for his own policies, but from Washington, D.C. to the farthest corners of the planet, his crimes against humanity are both evident and roundly condemned. And whether at the ballot box or in front of a judge or – fingers crossed – at The Hague, he will, at some point, have to answer for his crimes.

Trouble?

Trouble creates a capacity to handle it…meet it as a friend, for you’ll see a lot of it and had better be on speaking terms with it.

JUST BACK FROM DEMONSTRATION

Just back from demonstration against separating children from parents, I got pretty burned by the sun, and feel kind of dehydrated, so will go fix a lunch. So glad I went though, wonderful people, spirited rally and met Combat Medic in Vietnam, who worked from Medivac Helicopters. Nice guy and he may volunteer at VA hosp. and join VAP?

Families BELONG TOGETHER

This is start of Demo, before Feds kicked us off Courthouse steps, you can see me with sign Zero Tolerance Zero Heart, on left. It looks as if this is advertising another one on Sat. Jun. 30 at 10:30 AM. That one will be in conjunction with big one in Washington, D.C. I am sure we will have more people, and thankfully, it will not be in hot midday sun.

Yield a harvest of delight...

Feeling cynical, hopeless?



In its passivity and resignation, cynicism is a hardening, a calcification of the soul. Hope is a stretching of its ligaments, a limber reach for something greater.

Reply to Sen. Graham who stated that he was in favor of 45 military parade

No images allowed, so I scribed this: Dwight Eisenhower strongly disavowed such displays when he served as president. “Eisenhower said absolutely not, we are the pre-eminent power on Earth,” historian Michael Beschloss explained. “For us to try to imitate what the Soviets are doing in Red Square would make us look weak. Also, his saluting a North Korean Officer was very disturbing, besides he is a draft dodger 5X, and this is a self-glorifying parade. He wants to save money on war games in Korea, well, canceling this parade can save even more money. The MILITARY TIMES polled active duty soldiers and found 89% do not want parade. I volunteer at VA, and that hiring freeze imposed on us has really hurt med. treatment there. Use that money to bolster VA Medical Treatment. Thank you, Ron Alexander
