Al Sharpton joins interfaith service

Al Sharpton joins interfaith service

Representatives of a dozen faith-based communities and beliefs gathered this morning for an interfaith prayer service. Each took a moment to express in their own words why this war must end. "We should not declare God to be on our side, but we should be on God's side," said one clergy member. Rev. Al Sharpton closed the service with a moving call to take history into our own hands. Maybe folks didn't have the courage to do what Cindy did, but the least we can do now is stand with her now, he urged.

After the service, over 4,000 roses were placed on the crosses in front of Camp Casey II. Each rose was paid for by an individual who gave $3 via Working Assets.

Today is also the 42nd anniversary of the Civil Rights March on Washington. I was talking to Maggie from New York City earlier. She has been here awhile now, so I asked her what's happening? Without hesitation, she reply, "Grassroots democracy in action. This is thrilling and unstoppable. It feels like the Civil Rights Movement of the 50's when I was a kid. I have that same feeling now." After a pause, she added, "I hope that I'm right."

28 August 1963 - Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. said,

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

Wow . . .
No "royals", no "ruling class", no "Roman elite", no "servant class",
No "Star-bellied Sneetches" . . . just people sharing all the world in peace.

What a wonderful dream.

"There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need."
- All You Need Is Love - The Beatles
