Profile Information

When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Prejudice
More
without prejudice we would not have fear. fear is at the root of most wars. people are greedy because they are insecure, insecurities are a product of fear - people will defend what they see as their security just as an animal will defend its territory.
Can we change the world?
Definitely
More about me
mother, teacher, human.
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
Yes
Today is Rememberance Sunday in the UK, a day that honours the dead, the fallen and the courage of all soldiers who have been sent into battle for this country. The poem below is a graphic and hideous description of the horrors of battle, written by Wilfred Owen during the First World War.

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knocked-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we truned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind.

Gas! Gas! Quick, boys-An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime...
Dim, through the mist panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gurgling form the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as cud
Of vile, incurable sores on the innocent tongues,-
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori."

Hello Phil,
Nice music. I too am a teacher here in Michigam,USA. I have written a book to try an helpring understanding and peace but it meets great resistance. It is the story of our viking heritage, the worshipers of Woden and Thor who are still with us in spirit although they profess to be christians. It is a very old story that we have in common because of our language. Please drop by my page and have a look.
Peace,
George

http://thejc.com/articles/why-i-did-not-rally-israel



i believe israel has made a terrible mistake for precisely the reasons mr freedland expounds so eloquently. however, there are many anti zionists who are using this issue to hate jews, and that tears at my heart.



we are all human. we are all in pain right now, and none so much as the families of those innocent palestinians who have lost their lives . the fighting has to stop. - violence only spreads like poison - it… Continue
