Sad news for so many of us in the peace and human rights movement this morning to hear our friend Waratah Rose Gillespie has passed away.

Yesterday U.S. top Afghanistan warrior General Stan McChrystal was very publicly called to the carpet in the Oval Office. Sources say his job is on the line.

I catch up on my news in the airport. Yesterday I watched this obscure story about a second grader in Rhode Island who wore a baseball cap to school with soldiers carrying guns on the front.

The day after we here in the U.S. paused to remember the men and women who had died fighting for our country, the fight continued from beyond the grave.
