Just a short post tonight:
I’m feeling the need to DO SOMETHING to try to keep the U.S. from attacking Syria. After signing a number of online petitions, and writting letters to my Congressional representatives, I feel my voice isn’t being heard, and that I am part of the ‘silent majority’ on this. I desperately need a way to publicly declare that bombing against Syria is not being done in my name. So tomorrow I intend to fast for peace. Just one day mind you, but that’s one day more than I’ve ever fasted before.
After meditating on this, it occurred to me that others may be feeling the same way. Are you feeling helpless too? Could we come together, in a joint effort, to let our voices be heard? Is there a rally being staged here in the TriCities or a communal interfaith prayer service-something- ANYTHING- to help us feel that we’re being heard? The problem is, Congress reconvenes tomorrow and I’m certain this will be their first order of business, not giving me much time left to be heard before long lasting decisions are made. Any thoughts on this?
