Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. "- Corinthians.
There was so much I didn’t know
When I called down power
And you stared startled at the show
I didn’t know why you were so scared
And so sweet
I didn’t understand that
This wasn’t supposed to be
How was this allowed?
Why wasn’t I killed off at the start
I lived so little
Before you changed your heart
You killed my people
Left and right
If Power sparked in us
You snuffed it into night
And there was so much love inside of me
You tried to pull it loose
And now it will never be.
Is there pride in walking
An old familiar path
Or could you have done better
This particular half
This is Kal Yurga
the age of evil iron lies
I was your daughter
And the darkness you despise
I was your sister
But all that you could see
Was the difference
Lurking deep inside of me.
I offered you my friendship
Beauty from my eyes
I sat with you in the yellow dawn
And under weeping skies
There was so much love inside of me
Why couldn’t you bear the fact
That I should live alongside thee?
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
Hey there. I liked your response in your post on desixtc but rather than derail that post further with my own views, thought maybe you'd want to talk about it via some sort of other communication method. I'm always interested in other peoples perspectives on situations like this, especially when they are well articulated.
Anyway let me know, if you don't mind me being as forward as to say, if you use any 'instant messaging' program, it would be nice to discuss this topic, while I still am interested in it. If I don't hear from you then hey, I'll continue to enjoy watching Rent, on the "Shaw on Demand" system.
Ok where have you been!? And why didn't I see this post? Why don't you call anymore!? I've been worried about you missy!
Ok I'm done.

People are calling me names on Sawnet, just because I dared to disagree with them. Just like they did to you.
God. I swear those women are crazy.
Are you gonna add me on LJ?
I added you- and regret that I forgot, and didn't do it sooner! I've had some weird stuff go down in my personal life in the last year, and it has made me all scatterbrained.
SAWnet is very much a gathering of razorblades- you have to love debating to survive. I have to admit it is a lot of fun to delineate a particular standpoint and defend that terrority, especially if you can score some hits on people who have had their education and privilege basically handed to them and yet have the temerity to suggest that YOU don't understand the downtrodden.
But I was sorry to see that they were giving you a hard time, hon. I know its hard when people are slanging on you, but please don't take it too seriously. In many cases, you're debating with tenured professors that are surrounded by students who affirm their points of view, however callously expressed, all the time. Plus you and I are younger and we're not so prepared for the shark tank of academia.
I haven't really posted in a year but there are plenty of years of back issues- I hope that you enjoy my journal!
Thanks! I'm glad that you added me.
Sorry that your life is so crazy right now. I hope things settle down for you.
And yeah, I think you're right about Sawnet. The women on there act like they're gods. It's probably the result of being surrounded by students who don't know how to think for themselves. *Sigh* It still seems quite puerile.
Academia shouldn't be like that. I hope that you enjoy reading my journal, as well. (And I hope that if something I write offends you, you don't take it personally--sometimes, I am a little too honest on LJ).
Yeah, personally I didn't like the way it was designed. During the conception of the group, there was an open invitation for someone to make it look nice. Some one did it, and it stuck. The group kinda stopped after a while, but it seems like it could pick up again. I would like for there to be one Sikhs group instead of many so I can make you the moderator if you'd like and then you can make it look nice.

NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya
[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]
The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.
The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.
The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.
The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.
NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.
Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
