Bill Moyers interview with Andrew J. Bacevich

As Congress labors over the $700 billion "package" which we are being asked to pay for, I cannot help but wonder how did we get here and where are we going.

I would strongly recommend a viewing of this episode of Bill Moyers Journal with Andrew J. Bacevich author of "The Limits of Power: The End to American Exceptionalism"

Gaden Jangtse Monks at the Mariposa Museum

The Mariposa Museum is located at 26 Main Street in Peterborough NH (603-924-4555). It has a simple mission:

When children are raised with respect and curiosity towards
other cultures, the world will know more peace and less war.
On Sept 5 -10th 2008, the Gaden Jangtse Monks came and created a beautiful sand mandala. On the 10th they disassembled the creation, indicative of the impermanence of things, even things of great beauty. The mandala was created for the compassionate Buddha which they explained that all mankind can relate to. It was truly a special event.
