Where do we go from here

One of my favorite songs is "Come Together". It is sad that we as humans can not come together unless death or violence is involved. As the celebrations across the United States continue , there are some who are not toasting to the demise of another but are pondering the meaning of his death. If people take a moment to remember, our lives did not improve after the death of Saddam Hussein. Heck, the lives of Iraqis did not improve after the death of Saddam. What improvements will come to us because Osama bin Laden is dead? We are not more or less safe than before his death. We are still human.

In our humanity will we now withdraw our troops from foreign lands to bring them home? Will we finally put into practice the words we recite on Sundays across our nation? Do we finally beat our swords into plows to till our land? What happens now? How do we cause it to happen? Just as Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and Cheney came together to create Armageddon according to biblical writings can we come together to create a peace? Let's come together over peace.

  1. I believe this was the only war during my 43 years on this planet that was 100% justified. With that being said, and given that the 9/11 mastermind is back in hell, I think absolute peace is now 100% justified.

Why We Need More People of Color Writing Syfy

This weekend due to an enduring cough, I decided to binge watch Wayward Pines.  In truth, I actually need to binge on Game of Thrones but I shall save that binge($$$$$) for my birthday.  Let me not chase that rabbit for now.  Wayward Pines is one example of how having majority White writers of science fiction/fantasy continue to ignore the actual composition of Earth's population, the societal norms of those populations, and the ability of those populations to thrive outside of White intervention.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
