In memorandum.

Every night of September 10th, I make sure to leave my phone ringer on when I go to sleep. I will never forget the morning of 9/11/2001, when I received an early phone call, turned on the television, and viewed the tragic horror of that historical day. Much love and blessings to the victims, their families, the heroes, and the people that came together. Much love to humanity. Crazy things are happening and you just gotta keep on livin' and lovin'.

ick ack

Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of press... but the media can make the choice not to publish things that will obviously inflame citizens, and give some ignorant extremist idiot 15 minutes of fame. That is why that other nameless piece of garbage shot Lennon - a bit of press and what they think is glory. What's next?

in the days...

Important.



I just finished watching the moving documentary, "Crips and Bloods: Made in America", directed by Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z-boys).

It was a gloomy reminder of the failure of the government and communities to provide much-needed resources and opportunities to youth. Meanwhile, funding and programs are being taken away from SCHOOLS and the CHILDREN, who are in fact the FUTURE.

Please go to the link below and sign the petition in support of the Youth PROMISE Act. PROMISE = Prison Reduction through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support and Education.

"We are a democracy. We have the resources. We're the richest country on earth. It is absolutely outrageous, it is inexcusable, that we have failed to meet the most elementary tasks, of what it means to be fellow citizens and build a community."

"The ingredient is to care about people and to love them."

Revolution for the Hell of It

"This country with its constitution belongs to those who live in it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government they shall exercise their constitutional rights of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it." -Abraham Lincoln

"Saw a Ford Motor commercial last month that began 'In the old days when there were men and Indians. . . .' Isn't that unbelievable! It's hard to keep your cool in this land of the free . . . eechs! The land that Columbus discovered (?) - what does that mean anyway, seeing as how there were people living here for quite some time." -Abbie Hoffman

Scientia potentia est.

My book collection continues to expand, and the flowers in my brain continue to grow...with the writings and words of old revolutionists, philosophers, and physicists.

Knowledge is power.

If only I knew what a nerd I was back in high school... maybe I would have applied myself.....

nah.
