if only the seventeen-year-olds were NOW running the nation. . .

. . .we might live in a much
more peaceful world, right now. . .

i post this, as hopeful evidence
that the young people — the people
into whose hands this rather sordid
legacy will fall — are likely, even
though hobbled by our prior choices — to
govern more more wisely, and live more
peacefully, than this outgoing generation
of people — those running things, but for
these last few moments, only. . .

this video (in two parts) was created,
edited, compiled and conceived entirely
by seventeen-year-olds — pretty impressive, no?!
[a note of personal pride: the narrator,
and interviewer, is. . . my son. i know that
parents are never objective about their own,
but i simply couldn’t be more proud of his
keen-intelligence, his sense of humor,
his boundless-compassion, and the depth
of his understanding of the vastly-
complicated worlds he encounters, lives
in, and thrives upon, every day. . .]

part two is now available:

below — the first part, covers the supposed
reasons for the invasion of iraq. . . part two
(to be uploaded shortly, here) will covers
the opinions heard on the street, about vice
president, and “king of hush“, dick cheney.

imagine peace — be peace — live peace:

  1. What a wonderful young man you have raised there!

  2. thank you, lib — but it is,
    in truth all his doing — we
    are blessed with wonderful,
    compassionate, funny, selfless,
    brilliant, caring, beautiful
    children of the Universe. . .

    when i hear other parents’ stories
    of their kids constantly fighting,
    demanding, whining, lashing out
    in anger. . . i just wonder, how
    did we get so lucky?

    we seem to have drawn from the very
    deep-end of the evolved-life-form-
    gene-pool (for if truth be known,
    a fair amount of “trailer-trash-
    gene” runs in my blood, anyway. . .).

    cheers, Salween.

  4. Salween — the video links did not make it through — I’ll re-add them now.
