Quote of the DAY

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

We go to war under the guise of protecting our freedom. But why do we really go to war? For money and power?? What threat to our freedoms does Iraq pose? Why have we lost over 4,000 American lives and spent almost 700 billion dollars on the war in Iraq? Have you ever thought where that money goes? It goes to defense contracts and funds American-run construction projects.

When will we realize that we are all in this together. There is no them, there is only we. 

At our essence, we are all the same. We may look different, we may sound different, we may have different cultural backgrounds, but we all bleed red. We all share the same needs for healthy food, clean water, adequate shelter and loving relationships. Embrace diversity, it’s beautiful. Not gettin’ religious on you, but as Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor.” Not just your immediate neighbor, your worldly neighbor.

Much love to all!
