A Brief Introduction

Endeavoring to define myself outside of a "job title." I'm a nomad of sorts who fell in love with technology, activism, and helping others. I run a web & media consulting firm, have a blog specifically for activists & non-profits, and travel often. I love talking about theology, politics, and social change. I love doing something about it even more. I also like to be a well-rounded and fully present person. That's why I write here. Connect with me on twitter

Looking for an ethic of life

When young people die in war, it's only a soldier.

When civilians are killed in the crossfire, it's a cost of war.

When doctors kill unborn babies, it's only a fetus.

When governments execute adults, it's only a criminal.

When thousands of children die of hunger abroad, it's not a cost our taxpayers should shoulder.

When foreigners perish in genocide, it's not our place to intervene.


When humans are dying, when is it not our place to take a stand? Do we really value life?

Maybe too many people don't care when it's people from the "other" side. You being a Protestant with an Irish name visiting (enemy) NYC should understand that. The black and tans were beasts, but I've made up my mind never ever to blame every English citizen or Protestant (American or English).
