Creator, Keep the Women and Children In Your Sight

Walks On The Grass

Creator, watch over the people of the Ukraine, and keep the women and children in your sight. Protect them and bring the horrible actions of the war criminals to an end.

While it is well known that I no longer condone or believe that violence is an answer to adversity or ever acceptable, I am well versed in its applications as a tool. Most of my life I was quick to act out with aggression or violence, but when I was rescued by the Creator, I was also given the conviction that all that was wrong. There are always other ways for intelligent and civilized people to deal with disagreements or controversy.

I have said that to say the following, I know that to question our government may not be the best idea for someone in my position but I don’t care. The executive administration in this country is wrong and bordering on assistance to the despicable mania maniacal leader of Russia, Putin. We need to open up our own oil and gas resources and begin the pumping that we have the means to do.

The fact that we are supporting the waging of genocide on women and children by buying oil from the sick evil twisted piece of filth that would fire rockets and missiles into civilian domiciles and hospitals and try to claim that innocent women and children are military targets is insane, as well as unforgivable. I have watched this whole thing unfurl, from CNN, Fox, NPR and talk radio shows. It is beyond my comprehension that we as a country, regardless of the Russian warnings and scare tactics would let this maniac homicidal war criminal proceed on a course of action that negates human lives as he does.

And the Ukraine isn’t his first stop, he has done the same things in other places, but the point I want to put across here is that this guy has surpassed the horrors of Saddam Hussein, he has done as much terroristic action as Osama ben Ladin. It is unbelievable how, with all the super-secret and super-special forces soldiers and operatives in the world that we can’t just “end ” this man. This is what I believe the thousands of innocents who he has murdered with his rockets and his missiles and his attacks on innocent civilian targets cries out for. Then target his generals and then all his allies in these actions against the people of Ukraine and all the other countries, including the US that he has had the audacity to threaten with the “nuclear” and “we will consider it an act of war” rhetoric that he has been spitting. How about this, he lied from the start about his intentions, he has lied every step of the way all the while plotting with other countries over his timing and his intentions.

Putin has committed more atrocities than almost any other political leader in modern history, and if his actions continue he will be on course with the likes of Hitler, Lenin and Stalin. This man must be stopped, and these political leaders that are hiding behind this “we don’t want to start a war” garbage need to grow a set and realize the damn war has been started and is running off the rails. Already gas prices are forcing Americans to endure more financial hardships, food prices are on the way up along with the cost of fuel, to the point where many Americans will go hungry. Innocent women and children are being murdered and I don’t understand why this is being allowed to go on, or why the world leaders and why our  bumbler president is being allowed to say and do the things that his puppeteers are having him do and say.

After all it’s a well-known fact that he and his son both dipped their monetary beaks into the Ukraine’s money well and have been denying that they have since its discovery. So he has an interest in the Ukraine, in fact, with all the “we are the world, we are the children” pablum he threw around in his election campaign, one would think that he would be on his way to the Ukraine or Russia with an AK47 of his own looking to head shot the mad man that’s responsible for all this.

As I said, while I don’t condone the use of violence, I am well versed in its applications as a deterrent to unwanted behaviors like the actions of Putin, or the little clown in north Korea, “Rocket man” or that other despot in China, who’s name I can never remember. I’m sure if left to his own devices he will become a genocidal madman and murderer as well, after all look what he has already done to the innocent people in his country.

I just hope that the Creator can allow the types of justice and healing that are going to be needed, that he can see to the needs of the innocents and women that are being targeted in a sick attempt to force President Zelensky to surrender in order to stop these attacks. Hummmm… Come to think of it we have seen that behavior before, when they hounded Sitting Bull until he was forced to submit in order to keep the mountain cannons from cutting down the rest of his women and children, or like the biological warfare waged on women and children by the former British lieutenant, Sir Geoffrey Amherst (of college fame) in leaving blankets outside the villages of Native women, elderly and children in the depths of winter, after attacking and burning all their other cold weather garments and goods. I don’t know, I’m afraid of the world, I’m afraid of governments that are afraid to fight to keep peace and do so at any cost. I hope the Creator can help us out on this, but if not a well-placed bullet or missile ought to do the trick. One last question, what have we become if we don’t scream at the wrong of all this, if the horror of what’s being done to these people isn’t dealt with, without talk of alliances and allies and acts of war, isn’t right still right and wrong still punishable?

I am an elder in my 9th decade. I have lived an ordinary life, I’ve done all the ordinary and expected things, went to school, got married, raised a family, tried to be a good person. Throughout this life I have also been a seeker, an outsider by nature, always looking through cracks in the fences of life, questioning, challenging, learning, trying to make sense of the world and its conventions. Then in my golden years, as I sought to find meaning in my existence, some unexpected things happened and I’ve since learned it took a lifetime to prepare me for the challenge to come. My journey – indeed my calling - led me to come to know a remarkable man who happened to be an inmate in federal prison. Nothing could have been more foreign to my personal experience. GHOST DANCER Communicating daily for nearly nine years I had the opportunity to walk many paths with Ghost discussing our thoughts on many common interests with candor and respect. With enormous generosity Ghost has allowed me to share his wisdom and knowledge of his Native American heritage on Journeys of the Spirit. Over time, Ghost gradually revealed his life story in small bits, like scrambled pieces of some gigantic puzzle. Now, after spending more than 40 years in prison, Ghost Dancer is at last free and ready to tell his amazing personal story. As the saying goes, “you can’t make this stuff up” and as his friend and editor I can say this is a story so big that even after working with him for nearly nine years, I continue to be astonished as he shares new details my mind simply could never imagine. From the very first chapter, Ghost leads us on his journey and invites us to walk with him on his Nene Cate (Red Road). From the day he was born, a happy, loving gifted child, he endured heartbreaking sorrows, betrayals and exploitations. Through it all, Ghost fought a system determined to destroy him by any means, as he struggled to remain true to his calling. Through Ghost Dancer I also met and came to know Walks On The Grass, another federal prisoner whose story is also compelling even though very different. In Journeys of the Spirit, Walks has shared his decades-long journey from deep addiction to wholeness in LONG ROAD HOME and shared other bits of his story in ALONG THE WAY. Now as he approaches his August release into this crazy world of 2022 Walks shares his the thoughts and misgivings as he counts down to the big day in LIGHTS IN THE DISTANCE.
