Did I make this? or did someone share this with me? These are some the words that I was supposed to learn in Dominica, but usually never used.

16 January

It has been a long time since I wrote in any of my journals, personal or Peace Corps. Tonight the U.S. invaded Iraq. I found out at Bible Study. Murphy told us when he arrived late. I was relieved of the stress of waiting for an invasion, but upset at the thought of all the deaths. A lot of the reasons for the invasion has to with man’s pride. His beliefs that freedom shall ring and madmen will be stopped. Bush is sacrificing men and women for his beliefs. Men and women who swore to defend our country, not Kuwait. The U.S. is too big for its britches. It still hasn’t learned to take its place in the world and this invasion, if successful, will only turn the U.S. into more of a monster.

This weekend I broke a promise by not showing up to meet Catherine to participate in World Aids Day activities at market. Today’s sermon by Reverend Riley spoke to that failure. She said we should speak wisely, sparingly, meaningfully, and lovingly. I did not speak meaningfully when I broke my promise….
