Day 23 of 30 Days to Creating a Change in Direction

The Status Quo is like a Hydra and yesterday its heads were cut off and it received a stunning blow to the chest. The real victory lies in the fact that we, the people have awakened and exercised our right to say no. However, the Hydra has already grown back its heads and the grab for power has begun on both sides of the fence. This has happened countless times in the history books of our planet, only to have the sovereignty of the people violently squelched or put back to sleep in a bed of apathy. read more »

kindness is overlook and unappreciated. Try to think of someone else and show some kindness. I wonder how big the ripple will get? No matter how big or small I think something is better than nothing in this case.

Once upon a long ago, the music died when we read about the widowed bride. So went our homey apple pie, for something touched us deep inside that day on which all who were alive then, still remember where we were and what we were doing as we began to sing dirges in the dark.

One morning we woke up in innocence, enjoying our right to come and go without interference, and by evening, every American citizen had become a suspect. We've been stripped and searched, interrogated, audio and video taped. Our purchases are monitored while the media directs with fine choreography the grip of fear, moving from one event to the next, keeping the populace in a state of knowing. Knowing that if the terrorists don't get us, the birds will. We are the prey of the fear mongers and are oblivious to the fact that it is too late. read more »
