walking among sharp knives

Recently having written about knives and read others’ posts about knives behind us, this report about the abuses against Karen women village chiefs comes to remind us of the pain and suffering still ever present.

Please take the time to read it.  Please pass it along to your communities

Haiti Relief Urgently Needed

Dear Friends,

Please let us direct our attention to the situation in Haiti.  My dharma brother, Barry Briggs at Ox Herding has listed a number of ways to help.  Please click here.

Dharma brother, Andre of Bodhi Leaf, has recommended The Humanitarian Coalition comprised of CARE, OXFAM, OXFAM-Quebec and Save the Children.

World Vision Canada is also another organization that would welcome donations.

May all be safe and supported through our efforts,
