I pledge to stop supporting those who incite violence

Here is a stirring message about the growing malignancy in the soul of our country, a disease that was brought to our attention (once again) by the recent horrific killings in Tucson.   The message is followed by a Peace Pledge that I hope all who read this note will seriously consider adopting as their personal response to this most recent tragedy.  We are not helpless.  We do not have to stand by in horror, wringing our hands.  We can commit to taking the action recommended in the pledge,…

A Memorial Day Salute

This Memorial Day, I'm choosing to honor those who died for our country by considering what we should be doing to make sure no one else need to die for our country ever again. A couple of things that come to mind:
