Worth saving?

So today the court will decide the fate of Bradley Manning, and while I try hard not to get political on my blog, it is hard not to say something.

Yesterday I watched an odd movie with my girlfriend. The movie was called Melancholia starring Kirsten Dunst and Keifer Sutherland. Before I turned the movie on it was pitched as “A beautiful movie about the end of the world by Lars Von Trier.” I don’t think you can describe it better. The movie was odd and really great.  In the movie one of the actors starts crying because it is the end of the world. The sister tells her not to cry for the earth because it is a wicked place and not worth saving. She lets her know she ins’t crying for the earth but for her son.

Now to my political rant. After seeing the shameful, trial results of Bradley Manning I went over to the http://www.wikileaks.org website and I have to agree with the actor who said the world was evil and it can be easy to believe it is not worth saving. Our only hope seems t be in our children.

Bradley Manning is 25 years old. A baby really a child still and he had the courage to speak up and know the justice system has found him guilty of 20 charges against him.

Like I said I am not political and I am not trying to be political, I don’t want to argue for against war. I simply want to state that the one hope we have is our children and today the justice system will decide whether or not to destroy that hope.

Is the world worth saving well it depends I guess. I hope that this verdict and sentence will not stop people from speaking up, when they see something.



I know many people have strong opinions but before you comment I ask that you read and view the files Manning released on http://www.wikileaks.org
