Oh, how I want one of these.


That all people (me included) would heed the teachings of Jesus.

I've said this for years. Whether someone's Christian or not, there'd be instant world peace if this happened. Also the teachings of the Buddha. I tell ya, Buddhism draws me. The nonviolence, the mindfulness, the No Harm to Anyone. It sounds a lot like the teachings of Jesus, actually. Those guys should form a committee.

Our boy, Thich Nhat Hanh wrote a book, "Living Budda, Living Christ" that you should read. Remember, Buddhism isn't a religion, but a way of living - a way that works well with Jesus' teachings on how life should be led.

You DO realise that I'm a book addict, do you not?

I know of this book. Now of course, I have to buy it. I have willpower with my diet and stuff, but books? Nah.

I've been thinking about it more lately. What if they reinstitute the draft? I'll take my boys, especially Zack who is the most vulnerable age, anywhere necessary. And if Bush is (please, no!) elected (not re-elected...), the next 4 years may put this country completely in the toilet...I wouldn't want to abandon ship, but hate the idea of living in a theocratic dictatorship.

Yeah, but would they go? Isaac would, after prompting, but Caleb wouldn't. And he's the one who'd need to.
