Think Kittens, Think Kittens, Think Kittens, Think Kittens.

Good God, will I be glad when 2008 is over.  I am sick of politics, heartsick about the endless us vs them battle and the unremitting hate.  Enough.   

I want a little grace.  Is that too much to ask?? I want to see intelligence, hope, tolerance, unity, not just in America but with the rest of the world, and advancement in knowledge in all fields and understanding about ourselves and others, and progress in protecting the environment.  I’m going to die, there’s nothing I can do about it.  I’d like to die seeing that the people who come after me have just as much a chance to live their short time on earth as pleasantly as I got to live mine, if not more so.  I want to see progress made towards improving the lives of those who aren’t getting to live their lives as pleasantly.  And again, I am not talking just about Americans.  Or even humans.  I’m talking about all life.  Okay, maybe not certain viruses.

Here Finney and I close our eyes and dream of better days.  We are wimps.  We admit it.

  1. Hahaha. Thank you for your support everyone! Don’t you sometimes think about running for office, then all the problems you’d face once someone started to delve into your past? It makes me think for all their faults, a lot of these politicians are saint if this is the worst people can come up with.
