"...Disproportionate spending on war-making comes at the expense of funding for programs that benefit our lives and our planet. For example, a community near where I live recently announced that it had lost its funding for helping victims of domestic violence, an all too common occurrence as funding for combating violence against women is diverted to fund Homeland Security. In doing so, we place the lives of thousands of women at risk of harm. (Ironically, there seems to be plenty of money to train TSA airport screeners to grope women's breasts.)

Thnanks for the link. I volunteer at a women's shelter and man do we need lots more volunteers! It seems that women and children tend to bear the brunt of it all.

Hey where are you? Maybe folks will respond if they know where help is needed.<br><br>
Or maybe you can post about that in Activism as a call to action. (Can't hurt)<br><br>
Just a thought. Hoping and trusting that your shelter gets all the help it needs.<br><br>
Joyce in the mts.

Maybe I'll do that! It's a community shelter probably like those around the globe!
