Happy New Year

Today is the beginning of the New Year according to the Jewish calendar, and I hope that everyone who reads this page has a year of peace and health, in their own lives, and those of all the people who are dear to them.  Gandhi said we should act to be the change we want to see in the world, and so I hope I can have the courage to speak and act for peace in the year ahead.

This Saturday is also the Muslim Feast of Eid, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.  This, too, is a joyous day and I hope it, too, is one of peace and health for all who celebrate it.

Saturday marks the tenth anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers.   My thoughts are with all who lost a beloved person that day; the grief will not disappear soon.  And for all those who so heroically risked their lives and their health in responding to the disaster, my thoughts are with you and your families.

    Peace in American means peace in the world too.

    It would be a lot happier New Year if we were out of Afghanistan!

  • Yes, if we were out of Afghanistan, and the tea party would quietly return to their sewers, and — a whole lot of other stuff.
