I know some of you are wondering what might be unfolding with Jane. In fact she read and appreciated my last post. There is now a dialogue which is beyond what I hoped for. And I will just leave it there.
I am reminded of an amazing event during WWI when, on Christmas Eve, troops came together to declare a cease fire. This pause in the fighting was not universally observed, nor had it been sanctioned by commanders on either side. Yet men from both sides ventured into no man’s land on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to mingle and exchange food and souvenirs, to play football with one another, and sing carols. Here is a video of that moment in time. Yes, it’s a bit Hollywood. But it’s both powerful and poignant. Cease Fire
Cease fire. What might happen if we the people just stopped shooting at each other?

That is an extraordinary event, the trenches’ truce at Christmas. The troops knowing that peace is preferable to live than war and that combatants tend to the same on either side. When the layer of ideology and hate is skimmed off the top (with the ideology- and hate-mongers), there are so many better chances.
Exactly. It is generally those who profit from war that launch war. And now those that would profit from facism that are intent on bringing it to this nation.
