Veterans, Disabled Veterans War and More War

Are The Veterans Invisible?

Several days ago I saw a political pundit on H.B.O. talk about possible war in Iran.   When she mentioned taking military action, she did so with such non nonchalance that I was stunned into silence.   She talked about war as if she were talking about a new app for her Iphone, only with far less enthusiasm.

However, when it comes to equipping troops in war and providing mental health care, medical health care,  housing and adjustment to civilian life after combat, suddenly "We The People," who are already struggling to find jobs and keep our homes are the only ones who are expected to  provide for them.  

We do, but we can only do so much.

I want to do what I can.     I have several works of art that deal directly with VET's and I am selling them with the direct intent of giving a sizable percent of the proceeds to Disabled American Vets.   

If this is successful, I will do more.   I am just wanted to do something for the Vets.

I lost my father as a direct result of a Nation that was "War Hungry."  I have been grieving for 54 years his loss.   I do not want another person to know what I have felt and still feel.

Here are the pieces I have available.  

Thank you so much for reading this, and please distribute. 
Doing something, even a small something, is better than doing nothing at all.

The First Signs of Real Change

The Washington Protests: the shape of things to come 

Protests broke out in Washington D.C. during the inauguration of the controversial 45th President of the United States.  A distinguishing feature of this one was that it was not the product of spontaneous pandemonium.  This organized event brought together several groups unified in their shared beliefs.

                One statement made by this collective was so powerful that it explained succinctly the reasons for the discontent. It was a powerful message.
                Seeing a stretch limousine battered and flaming is an arresting image. What made this one potent were words spray-painted on the side “We The People.”  The connection between those words and the anger that compelled them to be written was visual, visceral and ultimately vitriolic.  Deeply seated resentments and frustrations were writing themselves on the American Psyche, one not accustomed to this kind of populist expression.

The Most Tasteless Thing You Can Post After A Tragedy

Kurt's Choice of the most Tasteless thing you can put on the Web after a tragedy.

Here it is

I am still in shock with this one. What would you do after a tragic air crash? I know, do what the "good" people at Z did and promote your cheap herbal remedy for depression.

Oh, and lets make it really "classy" and put the face of Andreas Lubitz on the page telling you how you can avoid depression.

That's right, if Lubitz just used St. John's Wort, no one would have died in the French Alps.

Hey, why not exploit human suffering, loss and grief to sell your cheap remedy for depression?

If you can make a quick buck, why not?


(I am very involved with issues related to mental health and this is serious. If you suffer from depression, bipolar or any mental illness, please seek professional help. NAMI is a great starting point. Mental illness is a medical matter, so please get help if you even think there maybe a problem. Prompt help does…
