'These children should not be victims of this conflict,' Save the Children in Yemen country director Tamer Kirolos told Middle East Eye. 'Yet, they have paid the highest price imaginable. We're calling for an independent investigation into the attack and for perpetrators to be held to account.'

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

Having lost a child myself to violence, I know the pain and anguish of such. Citizens everywhere know...but our governments? Fie on all war-mongering countries and ours is one of the worse. We have not been "at war" since 9/11 as war has never been "declared". Semantics...more important than just plain truth? The US is behind the travesty of the death of so many innocents. It is hard for me to be "Proud" as in my reality, it doesn't make me proud, but rather, ashamed and saddened.


If governments want to go to war, let the people in government go. I would bet civilians everywhere would agree to that...and government officials would definitely try to achieve a peaceful solution if that were the case.


I'm from the "Make Love, not War" generation...and that does make proud. Sadly though, it hasn't changed much for the better.
