What wild times, with the wonderful and terrible ever more evident! Don’t forget your deep slow breathing.

The “Water is Life Walk on Buffalo” was a wonderfully uplifting. Thanks to so many of you (see another great photo below!) for coming out – the police estimated the crowd at 400. “One: We are the people. Two. We love each other. Three: We will not let them wreck our planet.” Nya weh especially to our dear Indigenous brothers and sisters.
Dear Friends, 1/25/17 716-332-3904
As our dear and beloved hero Daniel Berrigan said, “Our apologies, good
friends, for the fracture of good order …. ” upon the burning of draft
files by the Catonsville Nine. We do nothing so noble or courageous, yet
we have been turning our “Weekly Update” announcements into daily
announcements because – the time is now, things are happening fast, and
this is not a practice run.
So we urge you to use good self-care, deep slow breathing, and whatever
helps you deal with the terrible acts and threatening horizons of the
Trump administration, and to come out when you can, publicize the events
and campaigns as you can, and know that we are all in this together.
As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “I believe that unarmed truth and
unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right,
temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
