Monday: a petition & resolution

Would you all help us with a list of concrete measures which can help both support the troops and put pressure on all sides for taking steps to a negotiated peace?

for the first list, i would like to suggest that one go to their local VFW or American Legion in person to discuss actions to support troops.

for the latter, allow me to suggest that every one who is interested in resolving the conflict, whether you be for or against this war, learn as much as you can about the social and economic issues of the Gulf Area, SW Asia, the Middle East, Arab Nationalism, and Islamic culture, both fundamentalist and moderate. Learn Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu. Let's take steps to understand each other.

I'm suggesting that we all arm ourselves with the tools of knowledge, faith, hope, mercy, courage, and patience. We will get through this, one day at a time.

Merry Christmas!
