Well, I'm off to the anti-war protest in Washington, so I won't be posting for a few days. Maybe longer, if things get interesting.
Hopefully the protest will go well, meaning that it will remain non-violent. One never knows . . . it would be understandable if some of the protesters and some of the police got into it, because there are many, powerful emotions involved here.
I mean, after all: people ARE being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan . . . innocent people, as well as U. S. soldiers.
And it's not beyond the realm of possibility for the pro-war government of BOTH political parties to have its agents infiltrate the ranks of the protesters in order to create trouble (i.e., violence) so as to give this non-violent protest a tinge of violence and the protesters bad name.
Let's end this war NOW.
It's up to us, you know; not our politicians. They do, after all, answer to us; because we are the People--if and when we finally decide to take on the responsibility of being the People.
But whether we ever decide to act like the People or not is actually irrelevant. . . because we ARE responsible nevertheless.
If this war is wrong, which it is, then we--the People--are to blame for it; not our politicians.
And that's why I am going to Washington.
