red-chair memorial

Today, it's happening in Sarajevo, as it happens, but how I wish it would happen anywhere in the wake of political ego-tripping that generally spills the blood of someone other than the ego-trippers.

The history of man is dotted with inspiring creations. But those creations never seem to have the power to divert or dissuade vast and vile depredations.

Will it happen again ... and again ... and again? Yes. Inspiring creation, vile depredation ... yes. And becoming either an optimist or a pessimist just assures more of the same... a self-congratulatory circle jerk.

But opening the eyes is possible. Taking personal responsibility is possible. Paying attention is possible.

Let's do that.
