The new year came in with meeting new friends and bonding with family. Traditional families, pundits and prognosticators, have tried to instruct us that it is in decline. I say not. Perhaps families like the planet, the people on it, and the life surrounding it are in flux. Flummoxed and inflamed and the moving scene is ever changing in the “now.” The buterflies will come out in us and all our families they just need a chance to crack their cocoon. War is everywhere in the hearts of constricted and angry in the adult-child heart. Things don't seem fair. Gaza and Israel, will they ever get along? I'm forty two and the Palestinians are treated like the Jews of Germany and the Jews of Israel would rather fight and forget than forgive and remember. It has been going on since before I was born. Can hateful Hammas commandos stop their cyclical violence or must they continue their karma of chaos? Wonder that.....

What earth? New species are being found and fondled while others die in a wake of crashing land grabs for parking lots and stuff

buildings with stuff to occupy our minds and muddle the souls of humans. Stock market crashes so lets rename downward dog in Yoga “Henry Paulson” pose. I hope he uses Vaseline when he reams the people that were schemed out of their household dreams. He's sure to get enough money to those who caused the problem

Let us not get too gloomy with all of the troubles that consume me....or lets remember those who put love in their hearts and fought with love to bring what is above here to us caught below. With only a comb and clothes on her back she walked and taught with here spirit over 25,000miles and hoofed it 6 times across the United States and Canada. Tolerance was her life for Gay, Lesbian, and the poor and down trodden. My words are a poor facilitator of her life.

”“ In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem - it would be impossible. In their immaturity people want, at the same time, peace and the things which make war. However, people can mature just as children grow up. Yes, our institutions and our leaders reflect our immaturity, but as we mature we will elect better leaders and set up better institutions. It always comes back to the thing so many of us wish to avoid: working to improve ourselves." —Peace Pilgrim, [ We are all from the same stuff we just live it subjectively. Change your subjectiveness and the world will change with you. Don't get a life. WE ARE LIFE! Four years from a reconing let's get out of our lifeless cocoon. Let butterfly to sky and bring back down what we know can change what's around. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I understand where you're coming from. It's all sad. Forgiveness and acceptance is the key.

“The number of registered Palestine refugees has subsequently grown from 914,000 in 1950 to more than 4.6 million in 2008”. These United Nations’ numbers calculate a 502% Palestinian refugee population increase in 58 years inside and outside of Israel.

Inside Israel’s borders, refugee camps have operated for 58 years. There are refugee camps in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Gaza, etc.

What are the living conditions and upward mobility of refugees in camps in Israel?
If you were a 20 year old woman, born and raised in a refugee camp, would you want to have children?
Is this just a means for racism and cheap labor?

I‘m shocked at the under reporting in the news of this (and over reporting of violence).
Is this a cause of Mid-East violence?

Years ago I toured Israel for 2 months and worked on a Kibbutz. It’s a quick side tour from Egypt. To see the segregation walls, green lines, refugee camps, etc. (or info on the internet of this) you need dig a little.
