I have been searching for something profound to say. I haven't thought of it yet.

I am deeply saddened and angered by the events of the past few weeks.

I am not surprised.

I am proud of Jean Chretien for remembering that Canada is a soveriegn nation and not the 51st state.

I am angry that W has made the world more dangerous by weakening the UN and by dividing allies and by putting oil(1) above people.

Mostly, I am sad and depressed because the world could have been so much more.

Tish talked about spirituality and working through the depression. I've been turning inward and outward as well.

Mother Earth sure seems to be mad at somebody :D

(1) from W's ultimatim speech:

"And all Iraqi military and civilian personnel should listen carefully to this warning. In any conflict, your fate will depend on your action. Do not destroy oil wells, a source of wealth that belongs to the Iraqi people."
