About

This blog reflects my thoughts, feelings, and opinions.  Eleftheria means freedom.  It is a Greek word, and freedom in any language is important to me.

I believe in speaking the truth.  Should it offend anyone, well so be it.  It is not my intention, but I know it cannot be helped.  I am an old radical, who protested against the Viet Nam war, was beaten by police, jailed and was not afraid to say what I thought and felt.  That has continued to this day.  You have to take a stand and hold your ground.  This blog will discuss religion, politics, war, fear, republicans, racists, and all other subjects I feel need to be spoken and written about.  I have no shame.

“Cynicism is an unpleasant way of the truth.”  Lillian Hellman

I believe that statement.  I am cynical and I just point out the lies and misinformation that the world and its leaders try to convince us is what we all should believe.  I will not back down.  I will be me.

“I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year’s fashion.”  Lillian Hellman

I will not conform.  I will not give up principles of kindness, truth, peace, justice, religion, and faith in the principle that there is good in this world and it is worth fighting for no matter what.

“Since when do we have to agree with people to defend them from injustice?”  Lillian Hellman

That says it all for me.
