We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls "enemy", for no document from human hands can make these humans any less our brothers. I think of them, too, because it is clear to me that there will be no meaningful solution until some attempt is made to know them and hear their broken cries.

Good News on Yemen!

On February 4, 2021, President Biden said, in regard to Yemen, "This war has to end." He said "unendurable" suffering must end. He said the 6-year US support for the Saudi coalition's offensive military operations in Yemen will end. Pending arms sales to Saudi Arabia have been frozen. He has appointed a special envoy, Tim Lenderking, to work with the UN in bringing about an immediate cease fire, increasing humanitarian aid, and restarting peace talks. There is so much more to do, and we must not relax, but this is an "hooray" moment. Many folks had urged the Administration to take these steps, by contacting WhiteHouse.gov and State.gov. Another message now of thanks to those same sites might be in order, as we gird for the continuing struggle.
