Pets for Peace [Jul. 7th, 2005|02:22 pm]

[Current Mood |falling off soapbox]






Thank you to everyone for their kind words about the loss of our Tasha yesterday.. She was a sassy, gorgeous & loveable Siberian & I'm so grateful to have had her in my life. Sally & King have been giving me a lot of TL Pooperdog support ^0^










My heart & prayers to everyone with friends & family in London.

I think that Bush & the Osama Bin-Laden wannabes are suffering from the same problem. Bush talks as God speaks to him, but I find it impossible to believe that Bush is hearing God correctly.. OK OK< I'm not at all up on the I have a Personal connection with MY saviour Jesus Christ bandwagon OK OK They pushed me OFF the wagon when I went to Baptist camp in Jr High & I said I couldn't believe all the kids in China weren't going to heaven because they weren't saved..but I digress
It's all so black & white with Bush.. I wish his thinking would become a bit more chromatic.
My Dad & I were speculating last night that Bush or Osama probably didn't have enough dogs in their life.

When people perform violence in the name of religion - it seems they have missed the whole point.. >.<

That's all I can do really.. Choose to love, choose to speak and think in a loving way -
or I've become a victim too.

::piles on hugs and support again:: ♥ I hate to say these sorts of things, because I can never tell if it's insensitive or not, but I asked my old and wonderful and amazing cat Toby last night to make sure Tasha had somebody to play with. Toby was always more of a dog than a cat anyway, so I'm sure he's already agreed, and is off with your love chasing insects somewhere. ::snugs:: My thoughts still go out to you so much. Let me know if you need anything.

That's all I can do really.. Choose to love, choose to speak and think in a loving way -
or I've become a victim too.


That's so beautiful, and so true. I don't think I could have put it better myself. Everyone ride upon the peace train!

much love and support to you, my psipsina is probably napping next to tasha right now :D i always miss my kitty patches when i leave home and am terrified everytime i say goodbye is the last time i will see her, so i can't imagine how hard this must have been >_<

that gets an aaaaamen :D i was somewhat pushed off the bandwagon at Orthodox camp xD but i never completely fell off but i know what you mean about the kids in China, etc. i don't have a single Christian friend, they're all atheist, Pagan, or Buddhist, and they're the nicest, best people i know! as for bushie and terrorists, they're both religious extremists and really that's all there is to it. sometimes i see a lot of the ridiculously fundamental Christian groups in the US as no different than taliban, just a step short of declaring their own violent jihad (in some ways i think the iraq war is just that). i know as a massachusetts softie liberal it's a given i'm against the war, but i have a conservative religious background and it just doesn't make any sense to me that any of all *THAT* would be what God wants. it's like... what happened to Judeo-Christian Religion Rule #1: GOD IS LOVE. ?!?!??! Or Equally Important Rule #2: Love Thy Neighbor. ??!>? have people forgotten or what?

honestly, this whole terrorism stuff and counter-terrorism has brought me closer to Jesus in the most unexpected way. i now realize he was the ultimate liberal and what he said -- be nice to each other damn it -- really is freaking hard for a lot of people to do. and that's why he died for just telling people to be decent. i massively respect him for that. when i hear christian fundies talking, i wonder how we're talking about the same jesus @_@

My Dad & I were speculating last night that Bush or Osama probably didn't have enough dogs in their life.
I think that's probably true. Do you think Osama has any?
Although Bush has one and he's killed more people than Osama has with these two wars. Maybe he's a repressed cat person?

psipsina
That sounds so familiar - is it a common Greek "pet" name?

My biggest problem at Baptist camp was being a Catholic - a Catholic who brought her rosary.. Living a sheltered life at an All Catholic Elem school, I didn't realize how different these 2 worlds were

yep, Psipsina is Greek for kitty. we were really uncreative with her name *-_-*;;;

Yea, Baptist and Catholic are worlds apart aren't they @_@ Actually you and I are very close as Catholic and Orthodox, so I know what you mean. Protestants are so different O_O!

Exactly. This is why it is logic to think they are only using the religious "theme" to justify their actions and manipulate people. Their actions, by the way, are not at all saintly. This is a war about power and money, on both sides. The ironic part is those dying have nothing to do with this conflict, and were not going to receive the power or the money in question anyway.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I hope Tasha is enjoying her stay wherever she is. <33333

I agree with your points on Bush--his spouting off religion like he's an authority on it. *sigh* I wish people were more open-minded sometimes all the time. *sends love your way* ^___^

Wah, I didn't manage to comment earlier but I'm sorry for the loss of Tasha as well. I know that there are hardly no words, which could help and it's making me sad for I'd so like to comfort you somehow. I'm praying for her soul, sending her all the best so that she'll be happy in the little dreamland of her's now, playing, making new friends there...
*hugz you tightly*

Your Tasha was such a beautiful dog - she will have lots of friends in doggie heaven.
Come and join your Laruku_fans_for_world_Peace force. We had to go back to London right on the day when all those things happened here and it was a bit unpleasant indeed. Our family was really worried that we had to leave them...

can i save the pic of Tasha? *hugs Helayne*
i hope Sally & King take care of you

haha* really said that about chinese kids? you daredevil ^^

pple give the world what it gave to them, those who can't give love have never felt loved in their life, imo. so maybe dogs could heal them? maybe these freaks would realise we're not in a life-sized Sim City, that pple have feelings and are precious?
but... just one thing though, i would feel anxious to know a defenseless doggy sits by Osama lol

"That's all I can do really.. Choose to love, choose to speak and think in a loving way"
you're completely right... except that sometimes i wonder if letting innocent pple suffer because of idiots really is love... wouldn't be better to stand against the idiots, crash them to spare the innocent?
see the results of pacific resistance in Tibet = 1,2 million dead and a vanishing civilisation. ergh... but i don't want to become a killer too. hatred is so hard to face & fight

Yes you are absolutely correct.. a point I sort of glossed over in my blahblah soapboxing.

*waves a Laruku_fans_for_world_Peace* imaginary banner with you

history repeats itself and it so often seems no one ever learns when it comes to such things...

...i can't even find words for what happened in london...sometimes i think if we got rid of the stupid people who do all these things with false pretenses of religious or patriotic right it'd make it all better...but of course that wouldn't help either, because then we'd be the stupid ones...the world's not a fairytale where it's clear who the evil stepsister is, and everyone doesn't live happily ever after even once she suffers from wearing red hot iron shoes (and it seems to me bush hasn't realised that yet)

When people perform violence in the name of religion - it seems they have missed the whole point.. ---> I totally agree with you. I've always thought it very contradictory and hypocritical of people to claim that they are executing actions in the name of religion. Honestly, should innocent lives be lost over religion?
