I Am a Patriot. Stop This Madness. No More Killing In Our Names.

On Thursday, November 13, I dropped down in my seat at the hearing room of the House Armed Services Committee on the Administration’s Strategy and Military Campaign against ISIL, a little depressed at what was to come. More war, less hope for peace. Just two days earlier, on Veterans Day, I was at the widely advertised and well attended “Concert for Valor” on the National Mall. Veterans Day was previously known as Armistice Day, started after WWI as a day to celebrate an end to war. Now it’s a day to glorify warriors, and I was threatened with arrest for having a sign that read “Celebrate the Peacemakers.”

End-Time Stories

The Internet is full of articles and videos speculating that it’s the end for us. While what is to come is up in the air, we do have our work to do: to go within and envision and create something new, conscious of the sacredness of life and the oneness of the divine within us all. So hold steady and stay in the heart… end-time marks the end of evil, not the end of love.

“War Makes Everyone Crazy”: Hiroshima Survivor Reflects on 69th Anniversary of U.S. Atomic Bombing

Sixty-nine years ago at 8:15 a.m., the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Destruction from the bomb was massive — shock waves, radiation and heat rays took the lives of some 140,000 people — nearly half of the town’s population. Three days later, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb on the Japanese Nagasaki killing another 74,000. At Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park and next to e A-bomb Dome (one of the few structures that withstood the blast) , blast survivor Koji Hosokawa, who was 17 years old at the time, talks with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! His 13-year-old sister, Yoko, died in the bombing.

Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!): “This is almost 69 years later. It was the United States that dropped the atomic bomb. How do you feel when Americans come here (to Hiroshima)?”

Koji Hosokawa: “I hate war rather than the people of the United States. I hate war. War makes everyone crazy.”
