Thank you, Shannon, for this beautiful story! Ah, if only all the women in the world could get the support they need to live fulfilled lives and to raise their children to be fully functional citizens of the world. That would truly be paradise.

This sounds like a very upscale project. I do appreciate the emphasis on being as green as possible. How much of this Public Market's products will be locally produced? I'm not charmed by chain stores. I'd rather have stores that carry California produced products such as wine, cheese, olive oils, etc. Let's be conscious of our roots in Santa Barbara.

I'm extremely impressed with the initiation of this restorative policing program and with the guidance it receives from Officer Olsen. For the city, it is definitely money well spent. For the persons with whom the officers have contact, it is a more humane approach to a problem produced by mental illness, economic downturns, and other perplexing societal problems.Thanks to the persons who had the heart and insight to initiate this program. If we as an enlightened society have the committment, there is much more that can be done with this restorative justice approach. We could almost empty our jails of all nonviolent and some violent crime.

Green Star is also organic. What about Handlebar coffee?
On Pedal Down to Handlebar Coffee
Where does their coffee come from? Is it free-trade? Does it support coffee workers? I only buy from Green Star because it does all of this, and has wonderful coffee besides!

Thanks for these critical insights into the OCCUPY movement. Movements start with dialogue, and we definitely need dialogue as well as boots on the street regarding the corporate takeover of America. Movements that begin out of frustration may not have a definitive statement in the beginning. As they grow and grope for focus, they begin to put into words the unease they are feeling about the direction our democracy has taken. I witnessed these stages of development with the civil rights movement, and with the movement to end the disasterous war in Vietnam.Participate in finding solutions to this broken economy and inequality, folks, rather than criticize the movers and doers.

What a wonderful program! I applaud the adults who began and assist this program. I especially applaud the young women who fully participate with a commitment to benefit from it. I wish all of you lots of luck!

We need to keep learning from the people who are living in this situation--both Israelis and Palestinians. I applaud you, Rand, for having the courage to be a listener to everyone. We have to listen in order to communicate with the other people with whom with live in this world. I wish our U.S. politicians could learn how to listen to each other and then truly consider the rainbow of options that are available to meet the needs and desires of peoples everywhere.
