On extinction level events, and other abstractions: a eulogy of love



Here in the West, we don’t know anything about death and passing, except how to fear it. But the best moments for me have come at deathbeds and funerals, simply because the totality is suddenly there, as well as a deep and very sweet cherishing of every breath we the living can still draw.

(NAINAMO)  Nobody can think globally, any more than one can seriously imagine one’s own death. And so when Fukushima exploded four years ago and as our skies and oceans became laced with toxicity, none of it seemed as real as the trivialities of my life.

Basically, I tried not to think about what lay across the waters. And so even now, as we are being slowly radiated to death in what has become an obvious Extinction Level Event, our planetary fate remains abstract to ourselves: more important than the trivialities, of course, but not more real. And being human, I guess I’m not unusual in that way.

Americans support our troops but the use of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches to conduct an unconventional warfare exercise over 8-weeks across multiple states for the purpose of realistic training troops for deployment in foreign environments makes no sense unless the plan is to use these troops for real within the sovereign fifty United States.

(MYRTLE BEACH)   There is a published report entitled the “National Pain Strategy – A Comprehensive Population Health-Level Strategy for Pain.”  Here is the link to the report   http://iprcc.nih.gov/National_Pain_Strategy/NPS_Main.htm  This pain strategy is being considered for implementation by the Health and Human Services (HHS) Division of the government.  The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) as well as Medicaid report to the HHS.  Public comments will be considered by the HHS on the pain strategy, but what is it that is so concerning about this “pain strategy”?

I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people —Maya Angelou

Angelou’s passion for equality, tolerance and peace naturally placed her on the same path as the Palestinian people’s quest for freedom.
