2-22   According to the NRA and others, including many politicians, people are safest where there are many guns, concealed and visible.

    There are places where guns, by law, cannot be carried, including the White House, the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., Mar-A-Lago, the Republican National Convention and many Republican town meetings.

    The NRA, supporting politicians, and other concerned people have been negligent and now need to work rapidly and forcefully to get laws prohibiting guns in these locations changed. Don't we want our nation's leaders and politicians to be safe?

    I suggest all readers write everyone who can influence laws, call to their attention places that have been overlooked in the campaign for safety, and call for immediate action to change laws so guns are permitted in these places.

2-19   Who could pledge allegiance to the flag of this violent nation and to the capitalistic oligarchy for which it stands, a nation under chaos, divided asunder, with liberty and justice for a few?

2-11  Orchids in the Morning   Photo by C. Remmerde with sculpted self portrait alongside the orchids, after she planted the orchids but before dusk, when she transformed back into a pumpkin, tears from all the orchids, because they had so enjoyed her company, and yet, and yet to grow beside a growing pumpkin, vigorous and orange, how gardenish, how growful, how very very lifeish. Now they grow so honored. Their tears abated.  Proudness and gratitude swells them toward the sky.
