The Promised Land

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
Ansel Adams

It's been a week where the United Nations held a Global Warming Summit. What did our beloved president do? He held his own...yet one more instance of the arrogance of our president and his inability to solidify our leadership in world politics. He sees that we lead if we do things on our terms rather then seeing we can lead and still sit down at the table with others....

I found this statue when I was exploring in Arizona and took a photo of it. Francis of Assisi was known for being a rebel and for his love of the earth amongst other things. The photo suggested the theme of today's posting.

Watching the Today show this morning I cheered as Bruce Springsteen spoke against many things in this country that have happened since Bush's administration. What was interesting is that MSN.com had his video "The Promised Land" up earlier with his criticisms which he included as he introduced the song. They then removed them later in the day.
