March

Yesterday, Sunday September 21, Pat and I were among the 300-400,000 people who joined in the People's Climate March in New York City

We marched with the interfaith contingent, which included representatives of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Paganism, and, on the Ark that was leading the way, at least one professed atheist. There were clergymen, clergywomen, nuns (both Buddhist and Roman Catholic), and, of course, lots of just plain people of faith – all moving in one direction

Denial ain't what it used to be, M

Gotta keep things in perspective, Iris.

I agree, Gillena.
