I'm Glad I Said It

Looking back over the posts on Scarry Thoughts over the past several years, it's become clear to me that what we're up against is no joke . . . but that there are things we can do . . . and there are, right now, signs of hope all around us . . . !

What we're up against

How we view others
What's right before our eyes TODAY . . . ?
War: an end in itself

Human exuberance and signs of hope

Occupy and the Church
Film, Protest, and the Law
Antiwar Twitter
