Support noncombatant Iraqi people.

Unfortunately, war has many unintended victims. It's not just the politicians and the soldiers who suffer; noncombatant citizens are harmed as well. You can help ease that suffering:

* Donate to the American Friends Service Committee "to support our work giving assistance and support to Iraq's homeless camps, orphanages, and hospitals, and our efforts to help Iraqis build a better society."

* Support Operation Iraqi Children by sending money or school supply kits that will help children get an education.

Just as many families in the US are victims of war, so are Iraqi families. Do what you can to support them.

"War: first, one hopes to win; then one expects the enemy to lose; then, one is satisfied that he too is suffering; in the end, one is surprised that everyone has lost." - Karl Kraus (1874–1936), Austrian satirist.

I agree, Lalealta, there are a lot of improvements that can be made in the US. Most of which will affect not only the people in the US but folks elsewhere as well.

But there is so much more that all of us can do, regardless of our citizenship or where we live. We must all claim personal agency and make positive changes in our societies and in our world.

Thanks for visiting, Lalealta. I hope you'll stop by again soon and spread the word.
