Benazir Bhutto

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated today
she expired at 6:16
I have no poetry for you,
words have no meaning
and the poet is gone
absent from all reason,
all choked up
with nothing to say.

Like Wandering Ghosts

From the June issue of Sun magazine...

(Dunno when June issue will be available on line.)

An article by Edward Tick* on how the U.S fails its returning soldiers.

Some comments:

"Soldiers have to defend their country, and it is our responsibility as citizens to heal those who have put their lives on the line for us, even if they fought a war for the wrong reasons or for lies, we are not doing that."

"It's not enough just to "bring the boys home," because they aren't boys anymore, and getting them home physically does not do it, we need to help them heal and help shoulder their burden.

"Healing has to happen at the deepest levels of the mind, heart, and soul. We need public apologies, public confessions, and public grief for all that we have done to our veterans, to other nations, and to the earth."

"To get off the suicidal path we are on, we have to feel the pain that we are in, that the earth is in that our communities are in".

*Edward Tick began counseling Vietnam veterans in the 1970's.
