Look into the void...

...for it is you.

Gerard has a long and excruciatingly thoughtful piece on the refusal to imagine.  From what I've seen in the last 10 years, 8 months and 19 days, the refusal to imagine starts with the refusal to look.  Look at what has happened, knowing the we can easily become part of it, either as perpetrator or victim.  (But remember, there are no victims, only volunteers.)  So, some images from around the web as a reminder  (warning - really graphic stuff below the break):



You, or my lyin' eyes, II...

Presidents At Work

This photo is now making the rounds – suggesting perhaps in 2008 Americans actually elected its first woman president?

And that exit sign is rather appropriate as well…

One of my (former) co-workers saw this on my computer and immediately said, "Oh, well, He's helping someone else, unlike the other two!" 

I didn't think so, either

... just pray:

"Everyone, stop and reblog this, it won’t make your blog ugly. Taylor is fighting a rare form of cancer and she is struggling to survive. Reblog this photo if you hope she will win her battle with cancer.  Pray for Taylor Love.  Shes so beautiful!"

Rabid Penguin Photography... my young cousin's photography site.  He is a young man, about to get married and chase after a Master's degree.  He's had, from what I've seen, a bumpy time of it, but his recent goals bode well for him, I think.  I'm hoping that his pain (I know it was there) has passed.

Go visit.  He has some interesting stuff up.

...or my lyin' eyes?

From Cold Fury:

"Bill Clinton, a white Southerner, was the first black president. Obama, an apparently straight guy, is the first gay president. George Zimmerman, an Hispanic, is a white guy. Elizabeth Warren, the whitest white woman anybody ever saw, is an Injun."

(Altho, I'm not sure about Obie...)
