I can’t find my old pin with the picture of the earth from space with “peace” in several languages written on it. the pin must have broken off at some point…years ago, I’m sure. sigh. I still don’t have an answer, only an internal surety that war isn’t it.
but I still get the feeling that what I think doesn’t really matter. we will go on “America’s Crusade,” as the News Tribune is calling it, guns blazing and damn the torpedos. and it won’t fix a god-damn thing. nothing I’ve read convinces me that we can do anything that will make a difference, except maybe for carpet-bombing the middle east/central asia with food.
