Blessings both dark and light bring wisdom to us in the form of some of the most horrific tragedies. Here's hoping we learned what we were to learn from the loss and the feeling of helplessness that went hand in hand with it, a wisdom that comes only with open eyes, hearts and minds and generally only comes to us through pain.

My fears now lie with our current government and not with the terrorists, my fear is for our men and women in uniform who must answer to the Presidential demands no matter how maligned those demands might be. I love my country and my fellow countrymen, but wisdom in the upper echelon is not exactly evident. Let us hope there is a cooling off and 'none' of us has to say goodbye to another loved one in the military with that feeling of uncertainty in times of war and let's hope that we can see the humanity in one another rather than the cultural and religious differences. That is where the changes will be made most permanent.

You know they keep preaching tolerance.... to me tolerance means to tolerate until the aggrivation goes away. Shouldn't we be preaching acceptance and patience instead? Tolerance is like a band-aid that keeps washing off in the water....

Blessings of peace and prosperity,
