Not only are we “divided in two” as a nation, each of us is divided in two, head and heart. (Left brained) heads argue for or against. Hearts feel the whole — all of us, war wounded and weary.
IF (and it’s a big if) our hearts are open. And when they open, we move back into unity, head and heart, with heart taking the lead.
I notice that Pope Francis is utilizing the language of the heart.
Okay, back to the head:
Huffpost headline this morning: WAR FIGHT: “EVENLY DIVIDED.”
In this gunked up, stuck “Congress,” thank goodness for implacable, relentless Alan Grayson!
His don’tattacksyria.com had 10,000 signatures in less than 24 hours. Right now, the figure stands at more than 16,000. Please sign if you have not already.
We have about one week to pressure our congressmen and women to reboot our democracy by stopping this war. And, I’d say, to stop all wars. No more war! It’s obsolete, stupid, destructive, etc. etc. Violence never, ever, ever solved the problem of violence.
