Peace takes courage

Everytime I read about the war in Iraq my stomach hurts so much I have to skip the reading. Same thing with images about Iraq. Same thing, no. It is worse with images. Can't face it. I know I've been negleting a very important charpter of our sinister history but hey, can't handle it. But apparently a conscious child in Alabama can, and very well. Ava Lowery is only 15 years old but she's an outstanding peace activist who made her first animation in Mid-March 2005 and since then has made over 70 animations, many of them about the war in Iraq. Her project Peace Takes Courage is now a website full of information about politics, USA and the war in Iraq. Here is one of her videos
and this is the Peace Takes Courage website

Peace takes a lot of courage, and so does watching all those images. Respect, little Ava.

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."

Eleanor Roosevelt

"Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradle. And how can we generate this imponderable quality, which is yet so invaluable, most quickly? By thinking that other people are inferior to oneself."

Virginia Woolf

I'm looking into those eyes now. The eyes of my own fear. It makes me so strong I can't stop staring at them, evil watery blue eyes.
Let me never put you down to feel more confident, cos that's cheating. That's too small. Hope you have the balls to do the same.

Eddie travels with Tony Blair to European Council in Brussels

Eddie travelled with Tony Blair to Brussels yesterday. He was shadowing the PM during a European council and had unique behind-the-scenes access. Whilst he was there, he recorded a Pod Cast which will go live on the Downing Street website at midnight tonight (Friday 16th June). There will also be an article about the trip penned by Eddie himself in Saturday's Guardian. To listen to Eddie's Pod Cast visit:

The suspicion the Universe is a conspiracy on your behalf.

On the terrestrial level, pronoia should be defined as the opposite of paranoia: the sneaking suspicion others are conspiring to help you (and you them!). Symptoms include: sudden attacks of optimism and outbreaks of goodwill.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery.

St. George's Cross

I live in a island of my own when it comes to the last futile polemics, even though I read a few papers everyday. I kind of noticed there is a St. George's Cross issue going on at the moment but every time I tried to read those articles I felt amazingly sleepy and moved on.
Yesterday, on the way to our first gig, i asked the guys in the band to explain me what was really happening. No, I shouldn't have asked. Ignorance is bliss. Whatta fuck?? They wanted to ban the use of the english flag cos it has fascist connotations? Blind me. Whatta fucking situation you got yourself into, hu? Can't use your flag anymore? haha. If you only kepf your mouth shut, some of us wouldn't have noticed the "fascist connotations" mate. To me, that red cross is the English fucking flag and so it is, no? A group of fuckers adopted the English flag to represent their "movement" and now you can't support your team? That's insane. Would someone explain me what is really happening? Can't be that...
