The topic of discussion in my house this morning was how outdated and antique the US train system is compared to the rest of the world.  I wish the US would get with times. The West Coast especially has a completely antiquated rail system.

Another truth telling factor that debunks the illusion, the "greatest nation on earth"

The injustice continues with the American Empire responsible for over 285,000 lives since 9/11/2001 and now more innocent children

Remembering—not forgetting—the dead America is killing every day on this Memorial Day

At the Un-National Monument along the Canadian Border
By William E. Stafford
 
This is the field where the battle did not happen,
where the unknown soldier did not die.
This is the field where grass joined hands,
where no monument stands,
and the only heroic thing is the sky.
 
Birds fly here without any sound,
unfolding their wings across the open.
No people killed—or were killed—on this ground
hallowed by neglect and an air so tame
that people celebrate it by forgetting its name.
 
-> Perhaps a vision of the way it ought to be—imagining shalom.

Story
Tagline
A member of the Society of Gentle-Cynics
Introduction
Reared in Hamilton OH, served as altar boy, excelled as Boy Scout, an aviation enthusiast, and golfer; joined U.S. AF (77) and stepped out in a lonely world. In '80 I encountered the story of Jesus which began a widespread human transformation and an emerging cognizance of the Way. I discerned a call to ministry and studied at Trinity College. Married in 87, taught MS English, began pastoral work in Richmond, VA, ordained in 92. In 93, I encountered ministry with a meta-church structure until 97, took a sabbatical and followed a path of enrichment while taking on classic spiritual disciplines thus broadening my theological horizons while applying doubt to my advantage. Moved to Harrisonburg, VA in 98, consulted in two industries; entered seminary in 03 to work out some significant formational projects at Eastern Mennonite Seminary; earned an MDIV while seeking to inch my way into a missional purpose and responding to an ongoing emerging church conversation with a growing cognizance of the Way non-violently via peace-making in a chaotic, fragmented and violent world filled with harsh realities and challenges.
