(As posted to my Gazette blog on July 19)

“And some of us, after another morning dose of news coverage full of death and destruction, feel the need to reach out to others to see if we are not alone in our outrage. With about a dozen assorted ongoing conflicts in the news everyday, and with the stories becoming more horrific, the level of sadness becomes unbearable. And what becomes of our planet when that sadness becomes apathy? Because we feel helpless. And we turn our heads and turn the page.”
– Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, in a statement on the band’s website called Imagine That — I’m Still Anti-War.

Please read his whole statement on the site.

Peace and love
