From the Washington Post, Shankar Vedantam, and Veterans for Common Sense
A Political Debate On Stress Disorder.

From North, Tom Davis, and Veterans for Common Sense Battles on the home front.

Well, it is the morning, sun not even up yet, of the last day of this year. A lot more Veterans will be coming home in the coming months. It is up to us to see that, to demand that, they get the medical attention they need. This year please try to be there for them - demand the budget they need to recover from what we sent them to do. If there is money for a war, then we must demand there is money for recovery for those we send to fight.

For those of you whose PTSD comes from Katrina, your pain is shared. For those of you who are not here, these are some images of life torn apart Images of Katrina.

For those of you in New Orleans, Jackson Square tonight at 8 - Arlo Guthrie & Family with a lot of others - admission free, which is just about what is affordable at the moment with no jobs, no homes, insurance not being paid.

A promise was made in Jackson Square. We must demand that that promise too be kept.

May this coming year, this 2006, be a better year all sround with less forest fires, hurricanes, wars, flooding, and so many other things. May we replace negative thinking with positive doing. Perhaps that way we can find better ways to avoid all of the above.

Ah, just as I was finishing up here, a good friend sent me this quote in a morning e-mail, something to think about for the new year from Albert Schewitzer:
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

Love and Blessings to All,
Happy New Year,
Miz' Remy
