Olympia Peace Tranquility, Beauty
Olympia Middle America, a refuge for a shattered soul, a safe cocoon for us wrapped in freedom quietly going through life’s daily chores, work. As I walk to the bus this morning I can hear the rumbles of War. The base 5-8 miles away they are playing/practicing War. It scares me! Then I think 5-8 miles away practice. But in the Mideast my walk would be consumed by fear 5-8 miles could be my home soon. To live with that reality!
But they are Bombing today.
Today I am safe practice doesn’t affect me . We the people ignore, shut out, forget. But they are bombing today.
My journal more a diary of late keeping track. No essays, poetry, politics. But they are bombing today.
Like the rest of the people politics opinions hidden except for a “like or Share” on Face Book. Petitions, polls, surveys briefly comment 140 characters or less. Then on to a joke. Hiding from reality. What would Tom Paine Do?
