Sophia's Peace Work

The mess continues ...

The bombs are still flying, Israel is calling up more troops, western peace activists are gearing up to go to Lebanon and the Bush, who could probably stop all this death and destruction with a single phone call, says there can be no return to the status quo (excuse me, but wasn't the status quo a hellava lot better than this?!? Personally, I vote for the status quo).

In Baghdad recently, eight bombs went off in my old neighborhood of Karada and then more explosions went off after people rushed in to help the injured. Isn't the mentality of Iraqis who are so willing to throw lives away like this, only taking on a slightly different form by world leaders who refuse to demand an immediate ceasefire in Lebanon?

An we lost a co-worker over the weekend ... killed leaving his house in Baghdad.
