The injury we do and the one we suffer are not weighed in the same scales.
   ―  Aesop
[As an American, I would like to believe my President when he says we killed a foreign general (Iranian General Qasem Soleimani) who was in the process of ordering / organizing terrorist attacks on Americans in the middle east.  Unfortunately, my President (and his administration) is a known and shameless public liar.  He has lied so frequently and about so many things – both trivial and important – I simply cannot believe anything he says without independently verified, concrete, public proof.
While I have no evidence of it, my opinion is it is far more likely President Trump ordered the drone strike to provoke Iran into taking escalating “tit-for-tat” action which might distract the American public from the up-coming Senate impeachment trial.
While we currently have the most powerful military in the world, incompetent leadership has resulted in the loss of more than one (otherwise) superior force in world history.  I pray his (Trump’s) failure in leadership will not result in any losses (injury or lives) for our brave men and women who will have to pay the real price for his ill-considered decisions and orders.  —  KMAB]

Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience, but the conscience of the whole of humanity.  Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize the voice of justice.

Life is for one generation; a good name is forever.
  —  Japanese Proverb
America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
  —  Abraham Lincoln
[A message to Donald Trump – who conspired with the Russians to defraud the American public and win the Presidency in the 2016 election:  A life of wealth and privilege which was granted to you by your father will soon be sacrificed on the altar of your ego, incompetence and criminal hubris.  You will be driven from office either by election or by impeachment.  And you will have to live with THAT and the judgement of history.
Mueller is coming…   He is carrying Valyrian steel (truth) and bringing Dragonglass (justice).   …And winter (your Administration) is almost over!   —  KMAB]

If I Had a Hammer

If I had a hammer
I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening
All over this land
I’d hammer out danger
I’d hammer out a warning
I’d hammer out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, uh
If I had a bell
I’d ring it in the morning
I’d ring it in the evening
All over this land
I’d ring out danger
I’d ring out a warning
I’d ring out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
If I had a song
I’d sing it in the morning
I’d sing it in the evening
All over this land
I’d sing out danger
I’d sing of out a warning
I’d sing out the love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
Well, I’ve got a hammer
And I’ve got a bell
And I’ve got a song to sing
All over this land
It’s the hammer of justice
It’s the bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
It’s a hammer of justice
It’s a bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
Performed by: Peter, Paul and Mary
Songwriters: Lee Hays / Pete Seeger
