Cottages in Capitola, California - on Memorial Day
In loving memory of all those who have fought, struggled, and sacrificed in defense of our ideals and for the freedoms of all people.
Regarding the flag here...
It is important for me to note that though I love the principals and founding documents of this nation - I am not a flag waver. I will hold the dignity and value of all people above the flag of any land. Nationalism frequently hurts and rarely helps - in creating an atmosphere of building and sustaining a better planet. It is important we acknowledge that we are all on this little blue satellite - with completely closed life support systems - hurling through space together. There is no back-up. There is no plan B. Humanity gets this right - or we parish as a conscious, sad, and foolish entity.
