"America is something different from whatever evils its power structures have imposed on it. Imperfect people come and go, but under all of them is this river of America that the idealistic Founding Fathers so brilliantly conceptualized. They, too, were flawed humans, but this spirit of the United States is something else again. The flags waving are for that, not for George Bush. We are one, beyond where our leadership steers us. Thank God. We are a hope of the world. Maybe, thanks to this tragedy. we will achieve our promise. Let's pray for that."

These times are dangerously out of balance. Exploitation has supplanted
interest in the common good. What can be done to bring about a more
life-sustaining perception, grounded in an awareness that we are one?
"Upon this gifted age, in its dark hour,
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
Of facts...they lie unquestioned, uncombined.
Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun, but there exists no loom
To weave it into fabric..."
-Edna St. Vincent Millay-
"A coalition already exists in spirit. It is coming together now in the social context by the attraction of its unconventional intelligence and compassionate form of high-mindedness. This natural coalition is drawn together by the recognition that the elevation of consciousness is our fundamental life work. This is a genuinely democratic, self-organizing force, flowing through persons of all descriptions. This force does not flourish as any highly structured form. It is not an institution or a foundation or a non-profit company or anything conventionally named. This coalition is a living organism -- natural, wild, free. It is made up of individuals devoted to serving the world and developing themselves as finely tuned instruments of service. They learn to gather in the energy of will-to-good, from which authentic goodwill flows out subtly to the entire world." -Lex Hixon-
