I am thrilled for Germany, and for the wholeness celebrated there.   I think seeing what has gone on in this country in these last few years, has allowed me to better feel what it is to be a citizen of a country doing things you cannot support, and, yet, at times,  what can you do.  Al Gore is giving us tools for change with An Inconvenient Truth.  We speak gently and lovingly.  We celebrate together the beauty that is, and reach from there for change.   Bush has had to back down on torture and violating the Geneva Convention.  A victory is won.

On the subject of survivorship, I think I now understand why my father never spoke of being a prisoner of war.  It was not who he was.   His father's family was from Germany, and, yet, he was shot down fighting for the U.S. against it.  Labels are not helpful.  Celebration of our unity is.
