My Christmas Creed

There are times when walking instigates thoughts racing through my mind.  Abstracts coalesce into statements, and statements into credos. And since I haven't blogged in a while...
I believe
-->That every life has an inestimable value
-->That violence and hatred in the name of any god is anathma
-->That assault weapons exist to deprive another human of their right to live
-->That hand guns precipitate domestic violence and accidental death
-->That a woman is the sole decider in matters of her body
-->That consentual relationships that foster love and trust are a gift
-->That open discussion can lead to the agreement to disagree
-->That argument and name calling have no socially redeeming substance
-->That I should attempt to add value to any circumstance I encounter
-->That Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men is a most enviable desire

One can assume that parts of this creed will not be acceptable to all.  If you buy into the first two and the last, we can agree to disagree on the others!  Whatever holy day you choose to celebrate during this time of year, my hope is that it will find you healthy, happy, and enjoying it with family and friends.

I believe!

  1. Indeed a woman is the decider of her own body. But when that body, carries a unique human being it has inestimable value knitted together by God himself. We had this same discussion when I was in my 8th 9th grade class would have been in 1975 or 1976. We didn't agree then or now. We are still friends and we have so much to agree on...let's just focus on those things. Oh so much to discuss, let's just still with the things we both agree on :)
