I wrote this blog about the war weeks ago. I have had many views but no responses. I don't understand. Where is my lesbian community? Does no one care? How do you feel about the war in Irag, the war in Lebanon, Afganastan. How about what is going on in Korea? How about the Genicide in Sudan? Does anyone out there care? Are we doing what we can to stop all this war and suffering and terror? I hate what is going on in the world. I hate that we used the horror of 9/11 to go and invade another country for one man's personal vendetta. Here our government says we must do this to protect ourselves and the people of these countries yet we do nothing to help the people of Sudan who are at this moment having their own holacaust!!!! What about the children that are dying from these wars and from starvation such as the babies in Africa. How about here at home?! What about our suffering children? Those in the care of the States, abused and neglected children, the homeless children, the children with working parents but are still at poverty level. WHEN ARE WE AS PEOPLE GOING TO BAN TOGETHER TO HELP THOSE THAT CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES? ARE WE SUCH A RICH COUNTRY? ARE WE SO SELF ABSORBED? ARE WE THE LAND OF THE FREE SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO CARE ABOUT ANYONE ELSE? WHAT PRICE DO WE REALLY PAY FOR FREEDOM? DO WE PAY IT WITH OUR HUMANITY? DO WE?!

Everything you mentioned on your blog that you wrote in August I have a very strong interest in talking to you about. Things in todays world are hectic and all out crazy. To many people are taking passive views, non-committed stands, idly sitting back waiting for someone else to solve or resolve these very serious issues. People are needlessly dieing for the sake of the dollar, people who are patriots in one country are labeled as terrorist by others, everythign is a mess. When does our humanity begin to surpace our technology

Do you all know where do wars come from? i mean do you all know what is the root of wars? well, it's human! When a human given the chances to choose, things started to go badly. It's not just Iraq & US but it's the whole world. War happens everyday and everywhere in every second. Wars like US-Iraq is called a medium war! Wars like all nation- Iseral is called a big war! If humans doesn't given a chances to choose, then there won't be war nor there be love. If love can cover all hatred, then the percentage of peace in the world is gaining. Actually, what i'm trying to say is that if all nation can stand up as one and stop all sort of war, we can bring peace back but to stand up as one isn't easy at all. p/s: Hope u all understand what i'm trying to bring out!

Patti, glad to hear someone from the US communicating something else than revenge and christian fundamentalism (sorry but that's what we hear from bush co, oh and tom cruise). I'm from Sweden and so being partly objective from outside, i can't justify the Iraqi or any wars from bush's side. sure 9/11 was horrible but it doesn't help or bring back to do the same a thousand times to Afghanistans or the Iraqi people. hope you understand my English btw, it's kinda rusty. The whole world is in self-destruction, and USA as the most powerful state should really do more to help it than to destroy it...

Patticat: I admire your tenacity when it comes to issues that affect us all. It may be on the otherside of the world but in the last few years we have seen those issues make its way around to us in the USA. We have taken so much for granted. Like the song says, you don't know what you've got til its gone! And it is going...going...almost gone if we all don't take a stand. The next few elections local and national are so critical--Bush and his cronies must go! Democrats have got to pull themselves together in uniformity to succeed. Hiliary go for it, whoever, just give a sincere hoot about ALL OF US! US and the World! Bless you for caring. Would love to talk with you but no premium service at this time. Be a good parent, and partner--it's all about the LOVE! smallndynamite

Patticat, You have my sincerest thanks for teaching your young one such things. I am a firm believer in the 'pay it forward' and 'do unto others' philosphies. My firmest one is the 'an it harm none.' People seriously need to pay more attention to philosphy and the power of speech and written word than they do other things - especially violence. I truly believe it's past time to put aside the fighting and allow diplomacy..REAL diplomacy..to have a chance at soothing things.

Aislin, There is surely a way to deal with things in a more diplomatic way. But it seems that our humanitarian side is not in this particular government office. For me it seems to be all about power and not the well being of all human beings. I know that this may sound so dumb but I really do wish we could all get along. I know there is a way but it has to start with someone. I have a 2 year old son and that is what I have started to teach him. I have told him that everyone is the same and everyone should be treated as such. No one is better then any one else. We all have mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins and we all have a faith of some kind. Respect and love is the key. I think anyway. I want to thank you for voicing your opinion. Patti

I am so glad to hear from you. Finally, Someone who cares about more then just getting into someone's pants. Sorry, that was a vent. It is true, many men and women are sacrificing their lives and for what? I don't think that it is always for our freedom. If that were true we would still be in Afghanistan dealing with the person who bombed our trade center and not in all these other places. Fighting over oil and such. I agree with you on the the education system. I am from Texas born and raised. As you know Texas does not rate so high in the education system. We do need to change this. People forget that every politician, every doctor, every scientist, every model, etc was taught by a teacher. We need to take view of our homeI would love to chat with you more. Thanks for voicing your opinion and for caring enough to have one. Patti

Ok, honestly, I think that we went into the war on Bush's personal vendetta. Unfortunately, many men and women are sacrificing their lives for this. I have all the respect in the world for everyone who is risking their lives to protect us, but I think the war is unjustified. As far as our country, there are so many people that need help here that are being ignored. For example, look at the education system right now. I guess I'm passionate about this because I'm a teacher and I see what is happening. I feel that b/c of the No Child Left Behind, our students are becoming great test takers and can memorize but their analytical skills and writing are lacking along w/their creativity. Ok, thanks for letting me vent. Let me know what you think

It seems like the more we claim to be civilized, the worse the 'eye for an eye' philosphy seems to become. I understand not wanting to bow to terrorists. It's like giving a tantrum throwing child what they want. All it would be is a reward for bad behavior, but surely there is another way to deal with it? I don't know. I understand where both sides are coming from but at the same time, I would love to see more of the humanitarian side addressed.
