A Beautiful Day

Click on image for larger view

It's always a beautiful day when its a holiday - actually, election day. This photo was taken today at 11:30 AM near the lookout.

It was also a day of change as Americans across the country defiantly voted for change. The Neo-Cons and the Evangelical votes have shifted their loyalties and have begun to question their leaders course of action while the President keeps reiterating "we are staying the course," and "we are winning the war in Iraq," while record number of Shiites, Sunnis, and American soldiers are dying in Iraq as the country is spiraling into a civil war.

Do we really want to stay the course? Has invading Iraq made life safer for all citizens around the world?

"Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love." - Martin Luther King (1958)

You are so fortunate to wake up every day in Hawaii. But you know that. Gorgeous panorama. I love what you wrote. There's no room for hate.

I've got to come here every morning to start my day. Your photos are so delightful.

And yes, change is in the air. Now we must all continue our work of telling the candidates what we want from them.

Great panoramic photo today ... As the result of the US elections there is a change in control but I doubt if there will be a change in direction.

Well said. I don't think the Bush administration really has an ideology other than whats best for Haliburton and the oil companies must be best for the country. In the end they've crossed some lines even the religious right couldn't accept... Iraq is in a civil war created by the US mishandling of what is unquestionably occupation of a another country. How arrogant of them to think they could just "liberate" another country without complicated consequences.

Lovely photos by the way. It is well to remember amongst all our human angst that its a lovely planet.

Kala, once again I agree. I am so excited abou the election. My state seems to be turning a shade of Blue and more good news today-Mr. Rum is stepping down!

Kala, I agree. And I love the MLK quote. I hope Louz recognizes when he says "how arrogant of them" that "them" is the leaders who made the catastrophic choices and not us regular folk. Somehow most of us could see what would happen if we invaded... why couldn't "they??"

man, what i would give to be able to jump into that ocean right now, instead of rain, rain, rain, endless dark grey skies, and wearing lots of wool...

and what a beautiful MLK quote--i'm a little hopeful about our political climate but afraid to be really hopeful.
