"So I think the Democrats have to make a very fundamental choice, Chris—and that is, which side are they on? You cannot be on the side of Wall Street, you can’t be on the side of the drug companies and the insurance companies and the big-money interests and say to working people,‘Hey, I’m on your side."

- Bernie Sanders, CNN, 9 Jan. 2017

“Pass along the value of empathy to our children. Not sympathy, but empathy, the ability to stand in somebody else’s shoes; to look at the world through their eyes. Sometimes it’s so easy to get caught up in ‘us,’ that we forget about our obligations to one another. There’s a culture in our society that says remembering these obligations is somehow soft; that we can’t show weakness, and so therefore we can’t show kindness. But our young boys and girls see that. They see when you are ignoring or mistreating your wife. They see when you are inconsiderate at home; or when you are distant; or when you are thinking only of yourself. And so it’s no surprise when we see that behavior in our schools or on our streets. That’s why we pass on the values of empathy and kindness to our children by living them. We need to show our kids that you’re not strong by putting other people down – you’re strong by lifting them up. That’s our responsibility as fathers.” ~ Barack Obama, 2008

“When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

Children who develop strong, caring relationships with all the people and living things around them will be more grounded and ultimately more prepared to function in, and meaningfully contribute to, an increasingly complex society.

(image: "The Dream Tree" by Maximusfox)


It's 3:23 in the morning
and I'm awake
because my great great grandchildren
won't let me sleep
my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet was plundered?
what did you do when the earth was unraveling?

~Drew Dellinger

“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.”
~ President Harry S. Truman, Message to Congress, Aug. 8, 1950.

Happy birthday Harriet Tubman, who would be blowing out 195 candles today. Ex-slave, abolitionist, suffragist, hero. After 1850 she entered the Confederacy 13 times to smuggle 70 slaves north to their freedom. Thank you, Harriet, for demonstrating that freedom isn't just going to fight for itself.
