We can analyze, criticize, theorize, demonize, hypothesize, etc. The bottom

line is that the young people of today will inherit the spoilage from the insanity in which we now find ourselves.

A STEP BACK IN TIME....THE 60s and 70s saw the rise of protests to promote

Human Rights to include Civil Rights, Gay Rights, The Anti-War Movement, Women's Liberation, Environmental Movement, etc. Of course, there was backlash to these protests and movements to include the presence of police in riot gear at mostly peaceful gatherings. This, in many cases exacerbated the situation. Today, we see students protesting peacefully who are being arrested. So off to college they go, many of whom will be saddled with student loan debt and an arrest record. Meanwhile, the colleges and universities seem to be more concerned with pleasing their wealthy alumni donors and keeping their "lofty reputations" to attract the students of the wealthy than protecting the rights of their students. Back to the Hippies, Peaceniks, Flower Children, etc., for the most part they were RIGHT. Just my thoughts!

I'll start by saying that many years ago, I stood across from Dachau in Germany

while visiting my brother who was stationed there while serving in the USAF. I will NEVER forget the horrific feeling I experienced with the knowledge of the atrocities that happened there. I am making no comparisons, just making a statement. I feel that we DUrs are very frustrated by what is happening to innocent people, particularly in Gaza. Given that, and the fact that we individuals have no way of "fixing it", that at times we react/respond by being overly critical of another's post. I get it! My supposition is that both Hamas and Netanyahu and his right-wing Likud have the same goal-no two state solution. Meanwhile and sadly, the slaughter continues.

JACK SMITH, from his initial involvement, reminded me of one extraordinary historical

figure and now even more so - Abraham Lincoln.
