Hands Across the Seas, Part II
A friend wrote to her that "prayers work". There is no argument about the fact that some people find solace, strength in prayers.
Our ex-president G.W. Bush spoke on October 26th at a Get Motivated seminar (ticket price $225.00) in Fort Worth,TX, about being helped by god in his decisions. And former prime minister of Britain, Tony Blair, talked about "divine impulses" during a video interview published by The Washington Post. Two men with blood on their hands. Sickening. No doubt the grand inquisitors felt empowered by god to burn the heretics. And the Crusaders went on their looting and pillaging expeditions blessed by god. In Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, the Islamic fundamentalists are killing each other as if there is no tomorrow. They,too, believe in prayers and they blow up innocent people in the name of their god.
It was what Sarah wrote about her garden that made me feel good.
I love the garden with the bare earth and compost. The red roses
are still blooming,along with the winter jasmine."
