ByTeresa Mei ChucDoug Rawlings

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Cầu Tre/Bamboo Bridge, Conversations between a Vietnamese Refugee and an American Veteran. Told in Poetry and Prose. "How could we create a more peaceful world? Perhaps, if we lived in reciprocity with the earth, the water and each other and only took what we needed and not any more, we could create a more peaceful world. Perhaps, if we lived with an allegiance not to nations or governments or religions but to gratitude, we could create a more peaceful world." - Teresa Mei Chuc. "Over the millennia, war has generated its fair share of cliches and truisms. One of the more devastating of these phrases is the notion that “to the victors go the spoils.” As if anyone wins in a war. Well, perhaps the weapons manufacturers, but I bet even they must have their moments of painful introspection. And another myth is the belief that war is “inevitable.” That we as a species are condemned to fight wars because of our very nature. Wrong again. War is a cultural phenomenon constructed from the fevered brains of sociopaths and a sprinkling of psychopaths. It can be stopped if enough people step forward to resist it. But who will these people be? And who will listen to them?" - Doug Rawlings
