"Despite all our differences, there is, I believe, a powerful connectedness to our humanity—a deep desire to reach out with kindness, with love and great caring toward each other, even to our supposed enemies, and to bring forth “the better angels of our nature”—that is undeniable and cannot be extinguished, even in death." Ron Kovic (Viet Nam veteran and peace activist)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. (Psalms 23:5)


We are now in the year 2011 and still at war - almost 6,000 US deaths recorded and more than a million in Iraq and Afghanistan - please take a stand against the wars and let your politicians know that these wars need to be stopped - in the name of humanity.
