Little Abeer and the American Marines

Here's the story:

Honouring all lives

The opportunity was there immediately after 9/11. But instead, in the name of the tragically fallen in the Twin Towers, evil and horrific acts were committed against children such as Abeer. Countless children. The disregard for these lives and those of their parents and familities and the lives of these often mentally challenged, marginallized and impoverished soldiers is appalling. The circle keeps getting wider and wider, atrocity after atrocity. Absolutely no good will ever come of this. The evil empire of the U S of A was formed in the coup d'etat of 2000 (some say even before) and for the republic to be brought to a state of grace takes another in the form of a We the People declaration and a massive insurgency. It starts with self-respect. I don't see it in this current occupation.

I was surprised by Loons this morning, calling across the bay to each other.
Grey and green day here. Sun hidden somewhere in the grey flannel of the skies.

A poem from yesterday with photos of windows from the church across the bay:

Come outside all ye faithful!

Come outside for the glory of God

Is not found within these walls.

Now shout Hallelujah to the sky!
