      I am so interested in US actions in the world and so grateful when diaries such as this are published. I have always had a sort of survival guilt based on the luck of the geography of my birth and I feel like the very least I can do is be in witness to what's being done by my country, with my tax $$'s, if not with my permission. Sometimes I can't take in all the horror, but I come to places like this in part to help me feel not so alone while I'm keeping something in my awareness that is painful, gut wrenching and about which I have very little power to affect.

      We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.
