Some thoughts on the "Occupy" movement

***Whether you agree with the Occupy movent or not, when peaceful people are getting tear gassed and Westboro baptist isn't, there's something wrong.***A friend of mine posted this today and I think it speaks volumes. The people of this country are allowed to protest anything we want. Whether right or wrong, pro choice or pro life, war or anti war. And when people who are protesting peacefully get tear gassed by police, not only is it illegal, it is a violation of human rights. The Occupy Wall Street movement for the most part is a peaceful movement. Yes, there has been violence in some cities, my own included when a pregnant woman was punched. I have friends in this movement, just like I also have friends in the Tea Party movement. The Occupy movement has it's flaws, most notably when protesters wave around flags that have have the image of murderer and terrorist Che Guevara on them. I hope that there are people there who are smart enough to know who the real Che was a…

Last night Ladies in White founder Laura Pollan died in Cuba. The Cuban Government is to blame for her death. Please pray for her family. She is a hero for her struggle for Cuban freedom and that struggle will continue and Cuba WILL be free. Que en paz descanse. Viva Cuba Libre! viva las damas de blanco!

For all my strong sisters and brothers.

To Write Love On Her Arms

With all of the suicides of young people in the news and so many people battling addiction I thought it would be a good time to share a link on his blog of an organization that has helped so many people all over the world, including myself. To Write Love On Her Arms is a non-profit organization that has changed the lives and saved the lives of countless people over the past few years. They believe that suicide is preventable. They also help with treatment for addiction and self-injury, all of which is an epidemic among young people today. They also provide links and numbers for treatment and recovery as well as hotlines and numbers you can call. Below is a link to their Vision. Please read it and spread the word. We have to talk about suicide and self-injury and addiction. That is the only way we can save lives. Peace be with you all and God bless.

In the Midst of Darkness by Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi wrote something very beautiful that I keep with me to remind me of how precious life is and remind me that God is always here. Maybe some people will find it inspiring too.

In the Midst of Darkness by Mahatma Gandhi

I do dimly perceive that whilst everything around me is ever changing, ever dying, there is underlying all that change a living power that is changeless, that holds all together, that creates, dissolves, and re-creates. That informing power or spirit is God. And since nothing else that I see merely through the senses can or will persist, He alone is. And is this power benevolent or malevolent? I see it as purely benevolent. For I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists. Hence I gather that God is life. Truth. Light. He is love. He is the Supreme Good.
