To be honest, I do not really care if this war is about oil. I do not care if George W. is just making up for his daddy's mistakes. I really do not care what this war is for. I do, however, care that lives are being sacrificed and thrown around like twigs. What matters is the lives of our fellow humans. God created us out of love, Jesus, his Son, taught us about Love, and in the end He died for Love. Love is the best way to have peace. We need to treat others as we want to be treated and we will not have these conflicts in the future. But maybe I am just too optimistic.

"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices when truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance". 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

War started late last night...not suprising. I don't agree with the war...but now that it is going on I hope it comes to a close soon. I hope that the loss of life is limited. US Presidential Candidate Howard Dean made a very interesting statement at . I am glad to see that he is at least one politician taking some sort of solid stand. Anyway...we will see what is in store.

so now I am a temp. I signed up with a staffing agency because there was no work in the town in which I live. I've been hearing recently from friends and what not that many people with college degrees are becoming temps. I guess its the only way for many of us to find work. Interesting...so now a college degree does not get you anywhere in this economy. Great...lets go to war...
It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Fred Rogers

Fred Rogers of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood"
died on February 27, 2003 after a brief battle
with stomach cancer. Once, when asked what
the greatest event in American history was, he

I can't say, however I suspect that like so many
"great" events, it was something very simple and
very quiet with little or no fanfare (such as
forgiving someone else for a deep hurt) which
eventually changed the course of history. The
really important "great" things are never the
center stage of life's drama. They're always "in
the wings." That's why it's so essential for us to
be mindful of the humble and the deep rather
than the flashy and the superficial.
