Merry Winter Solstice!

"If you live in this hemisphere, it’s your signal to celebrate. The shortest day is here! After the winter solstice, the days will get longer, and the nights shorter. It’s a seasonal shift that nearly everyone notices.

When is the solstice where I live?

The solstice happens at the same instant for all of us, everywhere on Earth. But our clocks say different times.

In 2011, the December solstice takes place on Wednesday, December 21 at 11:30 p.m. CST (Thursday, December 22 at 5:30 UTC)."

Happy Birthday Bradley Manning!!

War crimes whistle-blower Bradley Manning turns 24 years old today. He made the courageous decision to follow his inner conscious instead of the fuzzy "rights" and "wrongs" as defined by everyone's crazy & corrupt big brother, the US government. Would you have done the same thing?

He's one of the bravest young people I can think of, and I hope they have mercy on him at his trial, which is just beginning. Unfortunately, all that can be guaranteed is that history will vindicate him as a hero. That much, I'm sure of.

In honor of his birthday, I wanted to take time to post about Bradley. And in the process, I discovered this excellent song by Graham Nash (yes, that Graham Nash) and James Raymond (son of David Crosby).

Please share this video & take time talk about Bradley Manning! We can't forget where he's at & what he's going through.

(and if you want to take it a step further, like I did, click the link above and donate to his defense fund. what a great birthday present!)
