[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Dear Friends on this list, I remember someone writing What Next?? after so many wrote and called the Congress to get them to vote No to War. I do think writing the UN is a good idea, though I suspect the Bush administration is about to bribe Russia with 8 million dollars that the Iraq government owes it. I won't honor even a thought about what the outcome of the UN resolution will be. I hope principal will win out over money. I keep wondering what happened to all " the principled people" I once believed the world was full of. A few years ago I read a book called the Legacy of Luna. It was about Julia Butterfly Hill and how she lived in a redwood tree for 2 years during the worst hurricane to hit California in history. When I went to hear her speak (when she was on her book tour )she said that during the hurricane she held on to the branches tight and started praying. She really thought she was going to dye, but she stilled prayed. She managed to survive and she also saved an extensive chunk of the redwood forest by her action. The reason I am writing all this is I was wondering if we could pick a time ,London time and fix our watches to it, adjusting our clocks to the different times which would still be london time. And at that time everyday all the people on this list could Meditate on Peace in Iraq . I once heard the Dali Lama say that if one payed 1000 monks to pray everyday for world peace it would make significant roads to world peace. So what do others think. It would be an action we could all take at the same time in our various countries.
