"Somewhere along the line, there is going to be some issue come along that enough people are feeling strongly enough about that we are gonna go out there, and stay out there." God, I hope it is soon. There is enough room in the streets for everyone.

There is much more in your essay than superficially catches one's eye/mind! There is TRANSFORMATION-IN-THE-MAKING as it happens, represented by the two girls and you working on their transformational reality/"how to 'present' themselves"! Isn't that exactly what goes on with every one of us -ALL the TIME, whether one realizes it -or not! Just as exactly that is also going on socially, in our Local community, our State/s our Nations/ our Planet. The Global Family re-volving back to its God-given beauty and love and over all Perfection of Life, snekingly pushing through all the barriers of Human misconceptions about (the TRUE Nature) of Life and Love!
If somebody had told me on Oct 15th -05 that at the end of Oct. I would start experiencing those horrible roller coaster rides of anxiety, I would have laughed my head off as the saying goes. "No, no, no. Been there, done that" I would have responded. Yet it happened. Thank God, not only to me , but friends all over the Planet reported going through similar experiences.
Today, I am so happy, I had this experience and was able to do my part in cleansing out The Old, fear based misunderstandings and preconceived notions about "How Life Is" and thus making it possible to climb to the next step on our Stairway to Heaven -as it were. SO MUCH MORE LOVING AND ACCEPTING. Now that I have honed my discernment skills even more, I can see the pitfalls, that much easier and I can do my navigation of my little ship in the Waters of Life, so much easier and it also enables me to feel so much more compassion towards everyone. We are ALL -SOMEWHERE- on this Journey. I agree with you and Swan: "There is room (in the streets)for everyone" . We just have to realize that!... : ). ALL of us!

Saturday morning. Thanks for those thoughts, Swan and Blueboy. What is this issue of what is the issue that brings the population to the streets in defiance? Suffering, perhaps fear and anxiety about portending catastrophe, feelings of oppression and frustration unmitigated, building to the boiling point. And then there is the role of the military, and the police and the SWAT teams who are trained in loyalty to the perpetrators and agents of oppression to consider. In their uniforms, they straddle that line between where they have come from and who they are working for, whom they have been indoctrinated by. Where do those minds draw that line, and to which side do they choose to step? In Cocabamba, Bolivia, there came a point in the water rights dispute, as the people were gathering in the streets, when the police did not show up. Peaceful demonstrations don’t usually pose much of a threat, but when those demonstrators actually really want to see some results, the countervailing pressures are going to build until either the rock or the hard place is going to have to move. The demonstrations against the war in Iraq did not get there, and the whole thing has now turned into some kind of national debate and approval ratings scam while the murder and mayhem continues unabated. The poisoning of the Earth with depleted uranium, amongst other things, is almost entirely under the radar of public awareness, and it will likely take quite a few very intensive hurricanes before any group of persons begins insisting on some appropriate international policies through something besides petitions to the junta. The issue will be the suffering brought on by the devastation wrought by the economic policymakers. As the pain begins to strike the gut, the awareness and motivation to take a necessary step will bud. All is dormant now, as we wait on the edges of our seats to see what next catalyst of emotional fervor will be perpetrated on our collective consciousness. Something to make the Twin Towers look like a preliminary skirmish. The rooks and the knights and bishops are calculating their moves, and the pawns would do well for themselves to band together and change the rules of the game. Every day is another story, and another set of stories, and yes indeed, Blueboy, the lessons we can learn from the simplest events in our lives, can lead us upon reflection to better understandings of the undercurrents in our own lives, each of our own lives, and where we might be going, and how we might think about thinking about how to be dealing with those things.
