OK - Go Teddy Kennedy! Go Jimmy Carter, elder statesman of my soul. I'm watching the Democratic National Convention - saw President Carter interviewed, gracious, smart, honest, low key, talking of compassion and race. Then Teddy took the stand against medical orders and gave a strong (nothing low key there) moving speech which has me dancing and with goose bumps. I know he's a flawed man, has made lots of mistakes - but he stands for the causes I stand for and I have my flaws and mistakes too And I'm more like Carter, not one to give people goosebumps. I respect them both.

Peace is more then just the absence of war. People everywhere seek an inner peace that comes from the human rights to voice their views, choose their leaders, feed their families and raise healthy children.
