A Sister to Admire, I think!

“An elderly Catholic nun and two peace activists have been convicted for damage they caused while breaking into a US nuclear defence site.

Sister Megan Rice, 83, Michael Walli, 64, and Greg Boertje-Obed, 56, admitted cutting fences and entering the Y-12 site in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, which processes and stores uranium.

Sister Megan said she only regretted having waited 70 years to take action.”

It’s not very often you hear that someone who usually spend their life within religious walls (I apologize. I find myself ill equipped for words to say this sentence better and do them more justice. If you have any thoughts of how to write it differently please comment it below) take action about something that effects the society beyond food and shelter. Which are immensely important.  “Sister Megan stood and smiled as the verdict was read out at a court in Knoxville, Tennessee”. I’d believe it! She wouldn’t have acted if she didn’t think she was doing the right thing. The only thing she has to fear is the final judgement, not prison. I believe she’ll do just fine. 🙂

And also

“”We are a nation of laws,” prosecutor Jeffrey Theodore said during closing arguments. “You can’t take the law into your own hands and force your views on other people.” “

But isn’t that what laws themselves do? Just saying…


About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)
