I remember hearing about the threat of the mushroom cloud from this administration, but as I recall, it was a possible threat from terrorists.  I remember having that frightening picture placed in my mind as a consequense of not invading Iraq. 

Today, on April's Fools Day, no less, I read the news and American's are  again being warned about the "Mushroom Cloud" only this time we need not worry because it is our government creating it in our own country.  A "Mushroom Cloud" anywhere is cause for concern for me.  Is it just me, or is there something wrong with this picture?

I'm not sure what the purpose of this project is.  We will be told it is secrect and to Protect the United States.  Is it to show the World that United States is refining it's nuclear weapons and this is a picture of what their country could look like if they don't do as George Bush decides is best for the World?  It's a secret though and no one really knows why they are going to create this devastion to a part of our country.  I'm sure we will be told it is for our protection.  Does that make sense to anyone?  Is it just me or is this truly disturbing? 

I just don't know what to think anymore about what our government is doing.  I watch the news and I am informed, I just don't understand how anyone can believe that you can intimidate and bully people and think you can actually make true and lasting changes for the good of all people.  Yes, you can change leaders.  You can create a new government and you can control people's movements and most of the time people will go along and not fight you.  If you hurt their family, you create an atmosphere of anger and revenge and they will resist you with everthing they have.  This is human nature.  Did anyone think about the people who have lost loved ones in George Bush's attempt to make the United States safer.  At what point did he decide it was OK to kill innocent people in another country to secure the United States?  Why did he ever think that would work? 

As long as their are men in uniform walking around with guns on the street, no one will feel safe.  The more guns, the more unsafe I would feel.  I would not feel like those guns are there to protect me, would you?  I would feel the guns are there to protect whatever the person holding the gun decides at that one moment what is important.  

I don't know, I just find this all very disturbing.  

And the "Mushroom Cloud" we have been warned about, we are going to see, but it is not from a terrorist, it is from our own government. 

I find that ironic.

I spent the day at the beach today with my daughter and grandchildren.  Today was the first time I had been to the beach since last fall.  I wish I could find the words to describe how incredible it felt.  To feel the sun on your face and the smell of salt in the air, with children's laughter all around you.  What a wonderful feeling!  I'm going to have to increase my vocabulary if I am going to continue to blog, but for now, I wish everyone of you that peaceful, freeing experience  of the beach wherever you are.  

Peace and Love to you All!
Deb Z.
