  1. I'm horrified by this. Are we going to say George Bush the christian, every time he fires off a missile. Or every time your soldiers lose the plot and kill a few civilians are you going to call them christians, after all, they've all got very western sounding names. Are you trying to start a religeous war - you surely don't want that do you.
    Come on guys - if you want to make the world a more peaceful place you're going to have to search a bit harder than this. Try finding your heart - that's where peace begins.

  2. Now that your blog is officially being monitored...there is nothing like hitting the hornet nest before you throw the match on it.

    Islamist and christianists, the extreme criminal minority, would both eagerly incinerate the rest of us. Neither care about god per se..their giant delusion of grandeur, a psychosis of a guaranteed place of honor in the afterlife cannot be placated here on Earth.
    As Canada struggles to find a role somewhere between the Switzerland of the West and Uncle Sam's neighbour we were bound to experience terrorist (hate the overuse of that word) activity.
    These men are probably more the byproduct of isolation and prejudice more than religious ferver.
    All religions are exclusive clubs. Everybody has a monopoly on god don't 'cha know.
    Everybody loses in a conflict like this. I fear that the invasion of Iraq has guaranteed that it will get worse before it gets better.
    The only encouraging note is that Dubya has obviously accepted that his Freedom Crusade is doomed and public opinion polls certify this fact.
    His last hurrah, the final kick at the cat, Banning Gay Marriage
    (how original Karl Rove),
    is such a blatant sideshow to distract the public that it is laughable, were it not so pathetic.

  3. I just knew I could get comments by posting that link.

    Tom, I know where my heart is, and it's fine. I'm a peace-loving mom of four that wants the world to stop trying to kill each other.

    Homo Escapeons, you surely aren't lumping all Christians and all Muslims together, are you? Don't you believe there are in fact some Christians who aren't war mongers and some Muslims who don't actually approve of the beheadings done in the name of Allah?

  4. This is such heavy stuff!

    Two years ago, I was helping a ESL student at my kids’ Middle School (translating and such. They were giving the kids a presentation about High School’s foreign language program, the teacher happened to mention the Crusades and out of nowhere –it had nothing to do with anything she was saying, at all- proclaimed “…many call the Iraq war “George W’s Crusade” I was like “what was THAT about?”, she went on to talk about learning German, Spanish or Russian next school year.

    The reality is there’s such a thing as “good” and the opposite to that is “evil”. Blowing yourself up, anywhere/anytime, in an attempt to kill as many innocent human beings as possible, is definitely the latter, no matter what the excuse is.

  5. I agree, there is such a thing as good and there is such a thing as evil.

    So, who likes the heavy stuff here? Or would you rather I just wrote about the happy things, or the things in my life?

  6. Pamela,please go back to the stuff about your kids. I hate religion and everything about it. It makes me angry and sad and political and all the stuff that I guess in the end makes people religeous.
    LOVE LOVE and more LOVE, PLEASE.

  7. Tom, darling, light of my life, horse whisperer of immense skill, I shall do as you ask.

    However, you should know that I am not a hateful person, despite being a woman of faith.

    There is no hatred in me. I don't want to take over your country, nor do I want to invade your homes or blow you up with a car bomb.

    The worst I can do is bake you cookies and make you gain weight.

  8. Pamela, I know you are sweet and not for one minute would I judge you by your faith, but we must all know that for every sweet christian there is a sweet muslim too.
    We have to go beyond the labels and get to the product.
    luv u.

  9. Islamists and Muslims are as different as Christianists are to Christians.
    The 'ist' suffix denotes that extrem'ists' of the fringe element that will only be sated with complete world domination to the exclusion of all other religions.

    A Theocracy is to be avoided at all costs regardless of who is running it.

  10. smooch! Love you too Tommy boy.

    Homo, I agree with you. A Theocracy is a dangerous proposition.

  11. I agree - a theocracy is a theocracy, no matter upon what religion it's centered.

    And theocracies have this nasty little tendency to assume they're right and everyone else is wrong.

    And if you think muslims are the only ones capable of such fundamental intolerance, you've got another thing coming.

  12. And by the way, can I have a cookie too?

  13. Fontier, for you I would bake a whole batch.

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…



Back on the horse
Monkey on his back
I see no light
Not even a crack
Back to delusions
Back to the lies
I see through his words
He can't hear my cries

Back into his soul
Back into his veins
The poison he pours
Dark liquid his chains

Backed into a corner
Heartbroken and torn
Back into the needle
The eye of the storm

Back to the wall
Soul bruised torn and broken
Back to my pain
His eyes half open

Back into the horror
Will he ever come back
Back into the nightmare
A needle in a sack

Back into his childhood
I loved him with fury
Looking back on his life
His choices my jury

How did this happen
Back to evil and sin
How can he do this
Lines on his skin

Back to my weeping
Back to my sorrow
My son, my love,
Has no more tomorrows
