    I think that we can all serve our country by speaking up when we see that our politician, or the media, is taking us in a bad direction. Too many do not have the guts to take this kind of leadership. Changing the course of the most powerful economic and military power in the world is not easy.

    It takes a few voices to be willing  to take the early insults for daring to oppose a misguided but popular policy. But if the few voices proposing a new direction makes sense, many will follow and a change of course can  become the reality.

    War is costly. Peace is priceless!

      I should be doing more.

      I try by teaching my kids to try to not feel anger towards others, I certainly don't shield them from the world but we don't watch the hurting of others for entertainment even if it's only fake.

      I remember my roomates during the first gulf war all excited to see videos and thinking of stopping that madman who'd invaded Kuwait. One guy was quiet, later alone I asked him why. He'd been a corpsman on a Hospital ship off Saigon for a year. Said there'd be lots of dead people. He was right wasn't he. He had a perspective I and my other roomates lacked.

      I should do more actively to stop wars.

      How big is your personal carbon footprint?
