Teachers - My two friends who are both teachers, Fi and Liz, seem to be the most affected by current events. It must be painful to encounter the ingnorance and hope of the schoolyard teaching our youth who have no perspective of what happened.

diaries - mbp and sethcohn both aptly summing up the past 24 hours as the dust settles. Another diary caught my eye with the mention of the word PEACE, it was certainly shattered on Tuesday and shocked the world. The world needs leadership toward it, currently peace is only a luxury to those who can afford it.

The United Nations seemingly is our last best hope for that currently but given that even affluent countries such as Australia, who are signatories on the Declaration of Human Rights, can afford to ignore it (with respect to recent asylum seekers) and countries such as the United States of America refusing to sign up to treatries on the use and prohibition of landmines for domestic political reasonings, where are the right thinking men of the world?
