Does it work?

We’ve all learned at age five (plus or minus a few years) about apologies: something as simple as “I’m so sorry” can mend friendships and make small mistakes seem insignificant, while some apologies, when written down, are the length of the latest Harry Potter book.

Sometimes, pictures work best.

From SF to NYC, people have been apologizing to the world about this year’s election, sparking

I hope the world accepts it.

    Wonderful! Really bizarre and comforting too.

    You know, voting is the least of it. Even many if not

    most of the 48% or so that voted for Kerry are driving

    this country into the ground in their cars, with their

    egotism, with their shelteredness, and I include

    myself in that 48%. I have known most of what I know

    today in my head…but I am finally feeling it in my

    heart after witnessing an audacious assault on a

    bicyclist in front of twenty – forty witnesses by a

    man who walked off nonchalantly as I laid on my horn.

    A week later I find out that the victim didn’t press

    charges. We are being terrorized by bullies locally

    and globally. Christian Bullies and Muslim Bullies

    and Soul Twisted Money Grubbing Bullies.

    We fear ourselves and we hurt others in retaliation

    against ourselves. Hostility breeds hostility

    absolutely, and kindness breeds kindness absolutely. I

    have experienced this first hand having been off work

    and homeless for a week. If you can’t or won’t give

    money to homeless people at least acknowledge them.

    As the old poster in the 80’s said “They are

    somebody’s child” I would re-phrase it: “We are all

    each others children and each others ‘kind mothers’.”

    P.S. I miss San Francisco so much and I was only there for nine months. now back in Madison which is NOT the Berkeley of the midwest whichever other merits it may have.
