The Right To Declare War

Article I, Section 8. Clause 11 of the U.S. Constitution reads [The Congress shall have Power ...] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; ...

In other words, only Congress, not the President, can declare war. 

But the current President is conducting undeclared wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and threating Iran. He is unofficially involved in the wars in Israel and Ukraine. He is also making commitments in NATO and with other nations that could thrust the U.S. into more wars, possibly nuclear wars.

 As is often true, the forces of war are demanding more war, in order to free hostages, set a cease fire, and negotiate a peace. Currently, I am speaking of Hamas/Gaza - Israel, and the U.S. But whenever you read this, just fill in the names of the latest combatants.

If you want to find inner-peace, you must forgive others, not because they deserve it, but because you do.

Anyone can complain, and most people do. It is a real act of generosity and character to offer praise, and where appropriate, forgiveness.

Your Great Ideas

It does you no good to have great ideas, if those ideas languish in silence, lost in fear. Your destiny commands you: boldly take action.

Seldom is there perfection in this world, so don’t expect it of yourself. Just do the best you can and the results will speak for themselves.
