Those who seek to recover from oppression or care for those who are unable to, can turn to this collection of fact-based calls. They call for action.

Blaine-Wallace piece on "Lamentation as Justice Making". He notes that depression requires isolation, while sorrow seeks communion. He condemns the United States where a "culture" pretends that the individual is sacrosanct and makes the illusion of self-sufficiency an eschatological aim. He asks hard questions.

As America was led by the greed of its leadership into two Wars, and witnessed its Pentagon under-reporting and even hiding the casualties, he asks: "Who has the presence of heart [!] to establish a community for broken and bound-up hearts?" [185] The tears speak, who listens?

He diagnoses a society curious about the Superbowl, "while Pennsylvania Avenue has its hand deep in the cookie jar of our future, eyeing Supplemental Security Income (SSI) checks" that our elders were proud of providing as their legacy of work in the mills. "...Society has calcified sadness, leaving us as the living dead". [185].

"Shared suffering is doxological." [186] I respectfully disagree until Cheney is in jail and his estate disgorges the no-bid no-accounting war-profiteering of Haliburton. But I appreciate Blaine-Wallace's view of the trifecta of the Eucharist, an open wound in three acts: wailing, lamenting, rejoicing. We must be dangerous to the plutocracy to be so bent on pouring grief upon the poor. The grief is now political. The billionaires who stole our public resources and then Our Government must be set aside.

The articles are well-written, based on facts not faux fear-mongering, and well-chosen to address the injustices which must be and can be prevented before they occur, and redressed after. ( )

"...power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love." -- Martin Luther King Jr. (1967, 247)
