please read this if you have time, it's from my writing hero Joss whedon, but it's not about vampires it's about us..
Joss I believe is right, it is a time for a new activism from those of us who can, and we can all make some kind of contribution to our world, but standing back saying how terrible isn't going to change anything about anything. we have been sold in to pretty palaces of playstations and plasma tv's, and our fear triggers have been manipulated so much we can barely breathe anymore. it is time to breathe out again, and it's going to be scary... thinking for one's self.. doing some small thing.. but if we don't where are we going to end up?
ps - there is a petition online about the issue Joss has been talking about here - http://www.petitiononline.com/kurdish/petition.html
please have a read and a think at least..
