Thursday, October 4
Tomorrow’s post will be a simple one. I will be joining with thousands of other bloggers to express my outrage over the situation in Burma, to say "this is not ok". I’m not naive enough to think these actions will miraculously overturn a dark regime, but I’m hopeful enough to believe that if enough of us take seriously the role of resister, witness, and defender – the world will be different. Sometime we shout to beat down the darkness, sometime we shout so the darkness doesn’t beat us down.
In posting this I want to honour japanese journo Nagai Kenji who died this week as he did his job while kicking at the darkness, and the burmese monks who are peacefully standing against the regime.
See you Friday.
