Blackcat2 Bobby Sands (130* d) RE: Bobby Sands 28 Dec 99


Certainly one must admit that the hunger strikes were a protest that proved that non-violent protest CAN work. Who is to say that Bobby Sands and his commrades didn't do a lot to move the humans in N. Ireland, Ireland and the U.K. towards the level of cooperation and peace that occurs today.

And please, never dismiss a human being who is willing to die for their beliefs. Far too many things have changed in this world because of thos sacrifices. You are welcome to disagree with their beliefs and you are welcome to hate them, but to dismiss there action is to lessen you as a human being. Read up on Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. Jesus and the Buddhist monks in Vietnam if you really don't understand the ultimate sacrifice for your views.

pax and love
