Send a Green Star to Panayiotis Benas
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Panayiotis because you have done so within the last week.

Panayiotis, bless you and whoever it was that saw to your education!

Signed. Passed on. Women are always told what we can't do. We have such strength there is no stopping us. Women have died to give us the vote and to let our voice be heard. Mother's Day in America was originally a woman's day of Peace. Thanks so much for posting!!!!

Thank you, Naoko. message sent. About women against war, there is an ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes, called Lysistrata, which means Army-disbander woman. The idea of women who are able to stop war is very, very ancient...

Why do I suspect that extremes of any religion are really much more about who's going to be in control and in charge rather than deeply held beliefs. I

Though I don't believe in religion, I respect everyone's right to do so, as long as they don't infringe on my right not to do so. Inflammatory talk like let's burn the Koran or Westerners are infidels does not contribute to world peace. Men need to learn to shut their mouths, unless they have something positive to say. All of this chest pounding is nothing more than what it is, a big ape with an inferiority complex.

I prefer women to rule the world. We would have had at least 95 % less problems than we have today. Of course I am the boss in my house, but I always consult everything with my "special" advisor, my wife...just in case!

It will be many years into the future, perhaps never, if and when the women of Afghanistan can even have an opinion concerning war. They are beaten, tortured and threatened to think what they are told to think. if we leave anything behind when we leave, let us hope it is some meager freedom for women to start a difficult journey to free thinking.

Noted & will sign if the pledge page ever finishes on my computer! For those of you who like to read about women , war, & how to deal with men & their wars, I recommend reading "The Gate to Women's Country" by Sheri Tepper. The book could be tagged as feminist & sci-fi. Sci-fi yes but with some excellent ideas & thought processes. Thanks Naoko, however, I don't particularly like the color pink.

My standard letter re: Asian On-Line-Sellers.
Asian consumerism is killing and choking the planet with its non-lasting junk. Products from China and other Asian countries are cheap due to lack of quality (product & craftsmanship). The products break down quickly, thus more products are “needed”. Landfills, not only in their country but also in the West grow alarmingly and are part of the downfall of the environment. Asian products are known to contain harmful chemicals and are permitted in the West due to “international” agreements between their and our government in view to support the economy overpopulated countries.
The continuous input (into the Earth) of harmful chemicals damage and pollute drinking water and all global waterways. Did you know that China’s drinking water is one of the most polluted water in the world? The West has enough to deal with their own pollutions and we don’t need any more in “help” from foreign countries.
Furthermore, buying from such sites you support violations of Western Copy and Patent Rights. China and alike are lazy and continue to steals ideas and designs from the West. International Copy/Patent Rights mean zero. Fight such cost millions and ends in a no-win situation.
Buyers know Identify theft is mushrooming. PayPal is only secure to a certain degree, once your name and address is in foreign hands you and your family are free game; your info will be re-sold repeatedly.

Support your local economy, your friends and neighbours!

P.S. Care 2 member warned that it is difficult to escape these sites, you MUST respond.

I admire how women in spite of obstacles and destructiveness fight to get an education, something many in Western countries do not respect; the rate of drop-outs is a good indicator. Love and best wishes to the women in Afghanistan.

To Naoko and the women of Afghanistan: We are on your side. Never forget, that you are, constantly, in our thoughts. Women, as most always, will be the ones to make change.

As long as we raise male persons to think that, fighting is how you prove your manhood, we will have this problem. Fighting makes you feel insecure and insecurity, in turn, invites male dominance. It's a vicious cycle.
