Choosing to know and understand the facts, is the beginning of our journey beyond immediate threats and Faustus solutions. We must envision, plan and choose what we are to be on the other side of fear, panic and hoarding.

Death comes in many forms, especially for those who cannot look it in the eye with recognition. Memorial Day is not for those who fear truth, but for those with the courage to embrace it.

Arguing about it doesn't make Climate Change less a factual truth, that cannot be stopped. Those over 40 owe it to those under 40 to slow it down.

A call for a return to maturity and professionalism in broadcast media:
Prejudice, whether clothed in white hoods, red neck Frat Houses, blue uniforms, Media suits or Tea stained House of Representatives, WE hold this truth to be self-evident: There is no Exceptionalism in hate, media hyperbole, miss-representation of facts or oppression of those who do not look, act, think, speak or marry as WE.

Perhaps it's time for America to be on, The Left Side of History, or at least for protest signs and T-Shirts to be more emphatically inclusive: White male lives don't matter more than any Red, Black, Brown or Yellow life.
(3 comments) SHARE Sunday, July 17, 2016 Nothing Comes from Nothing
Anyone can have Faith, Hope and Charity in their hearts and minds when guns, bombs and trucks aren't killing people, but the real proof of strength of character is holding on when life is tragic. Real change, like healing requires patience and perseverance -- not bailing when it doesn't go your way.

(4 comments) SHARE Monday, July 20, 2020 Let's Make Good Trouble Get in the Way of our Bad President
Be the Good Trouble that Gets in the Way: It's a post FDR's 1945 death GOP, free at last, aided and abetted by Mitch McConnell's 1984 election, now looking the other way when, with impunity, Trump's private police kidnaps American citizens off American streets.

If we are to move forward with any semblance of the exceptional ideal of our beginning, we must realize that, at least since the end of WWII, we have been programmed by an ever-increasing powerful few. Then, we must reject their puppet strings, begin thinking again for ourselves, and resume our international leadership role in invention, education, humanity, and peace.

The whirlwind visit of Francis I wasn't to be Made in America with The People's Pope label.

SHARE Thursday, July 12, 2012 2012: Aristocracy or Democracy
What are we really voting for in 2012? It's as simple as American desire to have cake and eat it too. For instance, if you don't want trees falling on power lines during storms and cutting off your power, you've got to trim trees back away from power lines. Lesson: learning to live with the choices we make, especially in voting booths.
