a horrifying reality

If there isn’t a special place in Hell for those who willfully destroy the natural beauty of our beautiful planet, there should be. The unmitigated greed that blinds those raping our world’s natural resources is evil incarnate. Scott Pruitt, doing his best to dismantle the EPA is but one example.

 

 

a sign of truth

Here is a person of faith that gets it. If only all white evangelicals could understand who they have strayed from the teachings of Jesus…

moral responsibility

Not everyone would agree with Dr. King’s statement. I do. For me it’s a spiritual issue. But, I also understand that if one does disobey unjust laws there are consequences.

What do think? Does our moral responsibility include disobeying laws we feel are unjust? If so, why?

heading away at full speed

We are not drifting away from the truth. We are motoring away from it at maximum speed. #BLOTUS and the current administration is using Orwell’s 1984 as a playbook. We must not stop speaking the truth. Our survival as a democratic nation depends on it.

stand up and speak out

thank you Will...Lets try this..... William Faulkner

I’ve spent the majority of my life working to end hunger. I know from personal experience that by working together we can change the world. It starts with speaking up for those who cannot be heard and standing up for those who cannot be seen.

Faulkner says it far better than I can. Read his quote again. But,  achieving a world of peace and justice, a world where honesty, truth and compassion holds sway, is possible. We can achieve a world where caring trumps greed, lying, and hatred.

I want that world. Let’s stand up and speak out, and let us not be afraid to continue speaking out until we transform our world into a place where love truly trumps fear and hatred.

GOP tax plan: test failed

Was just talking about the difference between the Roosevelts and people like William Randolph Hearst. The Roosevelts used their wealth to make the world a better place, as opposed to building a big mansion and filling it with European art.

Maybe this should be the test of tax reform as well…just a thought. From all I’ve seen, the Republican Tax Bill does just the opposite.

We really don’t need to”help” our already profitable corporations and the wealthiest of the wealthy in our country. This tax plan doesn’t move us forward as a nation. It rewards the rich and ignores those needing help the most.

The Republican tax plan doesn’t make our country great, and it has nothing to do with progress. It is simply another demonstration of those in power paying back their wealthy backers. It is shameful at best, and morally repugnant to the core.
