We will be known as a culture that feared death and adored power, that tried to vanquish insecurity for the few and cared little for the penury of the many. We will be known as a culture that taught and rewarded the amassing of things, that spoke little if at all about the quality of life for people (other people), for dogs, for rivers. All the world, in our eyes, they will say, was a commodity.~ Mary Oliver ~
from her poem "Of the Empire"
I try to stay informed and involved. I make my opinions known to my Congressmen.
However, some days...
...some days even the headlines are more than I can bear. So I do what I can and I pray--even if my heart can't take the news.
