Exhausted. Praying for guidance. Hunger Strike day #26.

Well, Congress has retired to their Country Clubs for August, poor dears.

Although my health seems solid, I am exhausted what with the Hunger Strike and the almost 50 block round trip lugging my stuff to the Hill. I can't yet think straight about my next steps, although my sense of direction is - Continue the Hunger Strike as planned at the Pentagon weekdays and White House weekends through day 5o.

Why? To stiffen the resolve of the few Heroes at the Pentagon that are our greatest hope of not bombing Iran.

Added to the posters recently is a boombox playing clips of last Friday's Impeachment Hearings:


PATRIOTS IMPEACH. YOU? 1 0F 2 *MATURE* *PROMOTE!*

Highlights, dozens of clips from the July 25 2008 Congressional Pre-
Impeachment Hearing. Patriots held this hearing. What are YOU going
to do, NOW? Promote this video far and wide and...? [Note: among the
photos are babies, Depleted Uranium DU deformed - your tax $ at
work - ant-tank weapons.]

Start,

Take a break. Your witness is powerful, but now is the time to chill and
gain strength.

Peace

Dear friend,

Thanks for the thoughts. I am way OPEN to the idea that it is time to chill. It has occurred to me. But as I scour the news regarding Iran I conclude that this is make or break time at the Pentagon, plus, a daily vigil at the Pentagon is only possible for me on Hunger Strike - no bathroom or support, plus, the clips I want to blare at the Pentagon of last Friday's impeachment hearings have a very short half life - this month; in another month it will be official that no more hearings will happen.

But I do hear what you are saying and will continue to pray for guidance this weekend.

Start,

You're in my prayers. i think your witness is very courageous. I've watched a lot of people maintain significant fasts over the years.
Key is to keep your heart's ears open to what God's trying to tell you, be gentle on yourself and don't let machismo trick you into "tough" when the spirit thinks otherwise
Pace yourself and know that when you're ready to rest and recoup from this fasting, you'll garner the wherewithall for new witness and service to God's creation

Blessings brother

Start,
You are in inspirition to me in your depth of understanding, your dedication and your spirit. I do worry about your health and my maternal instincts to "feed the world" as my students say are strong. Please listen to your heart and your body. I know you will do what is best for you and for our world. You give a voice to those whose voices are not heard on the Hill. Sometimes when I am doing an action I can almost feel the people around me whom I represent. I wish this for you, too. Stay strong of mind, body and spirit, friend.

Oh, you are a special one sister.

I miss you a lot!

It is ENTIRELY by feeling my so-far-away "family" that I do what I do. This is what is meant by being "Saved," from pitiful Selfishness.

Your Loving brother, Start
