For Whom The Bell Tolls
"You can look at war as a massing of arms and matérial and troops, but you can also see it as something else--as a delicate web of interwoven choices made by human beings, made out of a certain consciousness. The decision to order an attack, the choice to obey or disobey an order, to fire or not to fire a weapon. Armies and, indeed, any culture that supports them must convince the people that all the decisions are made already, and they have no choice. But that is never true." The Fifth Sacred Thing" by Starhawk

Dear Friends,

What is going on over at the Monroe County Library? Rumors have it that some changes are underway that will degrade the quality of services that we have come to expect.

Should I believe that the Fiction Desk is going to become a thing of the past, that the use of service of the MCPL by patrons from surrounding communites will have to pay a yearly fee, and the expertise of the Reference Department and the Childrens Department will become interchangable?

It is a strong pill to find that children can now take what they choose from AV. The previous system was working quite well.

Dear Friends,

For Rachael, and other fellow activists who have been casually killed while offering an alternative to senseless violence.
I am perplexed by the callousness of those who would deny worth of cause to all but the well armed, suited and protected, paid military persons entwined in conflict.
I hear the "GOD BLESS OUR SOLDIERS AND....etc."
Makes me wonder what kind of god they are ordering to do their bidding. Like, "God bless OUR guys but forget the rest of the poor slobs who I disagree with. Because, god, if you bless them, then you are off my prayer list".
I fail to comprehend the heart that cannot, or chooses not to be grateful for anyone who would follow their yearning for peace and place themselves between violence and the innocents.
It is as if there are those who are "anti-non-violence. As if they truely savour violence. We seem to not be able to rise above our innate frailities that Darwin exposed when he defined the "origin of the species". Pecking order stuff. I can only here the "God Blessers of the warriors" saying, "Darwin was a commie pinko". Yet, they personify his doctrine. Homosapiens that have not even risen above our cousins, the gentle mountain gorillas. Yet they see themselves as righteous and having great wisdom.
I suggest that if you drool at the sight of WMD's being hauled down "main street" America while marching bands create harmonious blarings to exhalt their glory, you are one step away from the vine.
And to you who would deny humanity and deem valueless the lives of others who you see as heathens, primitives, less than civilized, I suggest you remember your own miserable childhood. For if you had been truely loved and nurtured, your heart would be breaking because of the tragic folly called war. The folly that justifies rendering its' victims homeless and shattered.
I imagine Rachael and those who had joined her effort must have been well loved and cared for by families who respected life. For from the seeds of those beginnings grew courageous, brave and most caring human beings.
The world is better because they exist.
"Abou Bin Adam, may his tribe increase, awoke one night from a deep dream of peace..."
Look up the rest if you're intersted.
I suggest that if as much effort by this country of wealth and resource, were placed on making peace as is placed on making and nurturing war, nothing could prevent it from happening.

Thank you Rachael.
D. Moore

Peace, in the sense of the absence of war is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed and where individuals and nations are free -
