It seems simple, but it is hard to achieve.
We all know of the Religious killing each other over Israel and Jerusalem in particular. The Israelis have their state, the Palestinians want to have their own state. Lines have been drawn in the sand, nations of the world are backing either the Israelis or the Palestinians. Fighting for Jerusalem has caused the city to be split into sections.
However, it seems that the answer is quite clear.
Why doesn't the UN simply make…Continue

Interesting article this morning...
25 years ago, Pope John Paul II invited Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims to a pilgrimage at the Umbrian hilltop town of Assisi, where leaders shared in common prayers for a daylong prayer for peace. On October 27th, Pope Benedict XVI is attempting to repeat this event, however this time, Thursday's event will only feature time for individual prayer and reflection. The estimated 300 participants will be given time to pray silently in…Continue

I pushed myself too hard, and now I am paying for it.
My surgical pain is at the same level that it was a week ago. I'm angry at myself for being weak. What makes me even more angry is that it took me spending time with the boyfriend to realize I shouldn't have to DO everything. But oh does it make me feel inadequate.
I started classes yesterday and it looks like it is going to be really easy.
Folks, I need you to do me a favor. My best…Continue

Steve Jobs should be applauded not for all the money he accumulated, but for what his iPad is doing to assist our autistic children. I wish that somebody would create a similar product to help our wounded warriors. People take for granted on a daily basis objects that we use in our daily life. If we are truly united under one, each one of us should reach out to a wounded warrior, a person in need, and as the movie said, ‘pay it forward’. That defines who we are as people. Not through…Continue
New Zealand winning the Stanley Cup was important to many around the world. It grabbed all the wonderful headlines and the great news coverage. There was great joy drinking in celebration. On the same day we announced that our troops were coming home from Iraq; There should be joy and celebration. The rugby players go home to jobs and glory... our service men and women come home to hospitals, families, broken homes, and in most cases, no jobs. Maybe we should begin a national registrar…Continue
And why don't we call the vineyard growers and the farmers in Cali and adjoining states that dangle the fruit of money to these immigrants illegal as well, for without their immediate employment, harsh living conditions and slave labor, the impression of this nirvana might not exist.

As I was watching the Republican presidential debate last week, I realized something. In today’s GOP, the correct term for a human being who crosses the U.S. border without a visa in search of a brutally difficult,…Continue

I started a mini-riot in San Diego today. I was eating a banana outside of 7-11 and a cop walked past me to pick on a hobo for drinking a coffee. He was yelling at the homeless guy for loitering. I was like "I'm loitering then". I probably should have looked at my clothes first before saying that. Old teeshirt, cargo pants and worn out sneakers. Luckily a few more homeless people starting chiming in, so the cop walked off.
This is very similar to how religion works. If more…
