Incredibly enough, while everyone else is saying that we should end the war in Iraq and talk with Iran and Syria, President Bush is now sending more troops to Iraq, and clearly preparing, in words as well as actions, to launch a military strike against Iran. (Or let Israel do it for him.)

A wider war in the Middle East would be a catastophe unlike any we've seen before, and could very possibly usher in a third World War. I signed the "No War with Iran!" petition, which is being organized by the group Peace Action, and would recommend it to you as well. You can sign the petition by cutting and pasting the following url into your internet browser:

Thanks for joining me in signing the "No War with Iran" petition!

Please read and think. This was written by a Columbine High School student. So well written and so very true.

 

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller

buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways,

but narrower viewpoints;

we spend more, but have less;

we buy more, but enjoy it less.

 

We have bigger houses and smaller families;

more conveniences, but less time;

we have more degrees, but less sense;

more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but less solutions;

more medicine, but less wellness.

 

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life;

we’ve added years to life, not life to years.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,

but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor

We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space;

we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;

we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.

 

We have higher incomes, but lower morals;

we’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.

<>These are the times of tall men, and short character;

steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;

more leisure, but less fun;

more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

 

These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;

of fancier houses, but broken homes.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stockroom;

a time when technology can bring this letter to you,

and a time when you can choose either to forward this message to a friend and make a difference … or just hit delete.
