(SAN FRANCISCO)   These 10 images are part of a visual story of my son Michael Paul Stone’s short life.  Michael died of AIDS in 1984, at the beginning of the AIDS crisis.  He was 19.  These images are to celebrate his short life, and to remind us that more than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with AIDS and almost 1 in 8 (12.8%) are unaware of their infection.

Garland cartoonists, Mohammed and common sense

Freedom of speech in this country is a wonderful gift that thousands of Americans have died to preserve. Having this right should also include respect for the faith of others. The event in Garland wasn’t respectful. This respect needs to permeate our country throughout all public events, demonstrations and religious gatherings.

(NEWBURGH, Indiana)  The Mohammed cartoon event recently held in Garland, Texas was a demonstration of free speech. People gathered to showcase their cartoons of Islam’s Mohammed. Cartoons of Mohammed are commonly known to incite people of the Islam religion. I don’t know of any Christians who like cartoons of Jesus if they depict Jesus in an irreverent way. I do not embrace anything about Islam. I do embrace their United States freedom to peacefully practice their religion. I am abhorred by militant Islam religion.

The active defense of the cultural heritage of humanity

There are periods in the history of humanity when some great new ideas are introduced, beneficial for all. Such ideas mark the beginning of a new era with far-reaching effects, creating new conditions for cooperation. The Roerich Pact for the protection of the cultural heritage of humanity signed by 21 States in a Pan-American Union ceremony is such a sign of a new era which transcends all obstacles, prejudices and intolerances.

(WASHINGTON DC) 15 April is the anniversary of the signing of the Roerich Peace Pact at the White House in Washington D.C. in 1935.  Henry A. Wallace, then the US Secretary of Agriculture and later Vice-President signed for the USA saying “At no time has such an ideal been more needed. It is high time for the idealists who make the reality of tomorrow, to rally around such a symbol of international cultural unity.  It is time that we appeal to that appreciation of beauty, science, education which runs across all national boundaries to strengthen all that we hold dear in our particular governments and customs.  Its acceptance signifies the approach of a time when those who truly love their own nation will appreciate in addition the unique contribution of other nations and also do reverence to that common spiritual enterprise which draws together in one fellowship all artists, scientists, educators and truly religious of whatever faith.”
