Tao of the Day  
There is no Them, no They.

We. We are ignorant, arrogant, cruel, hurtful to our Earth, hurtful to each other, kind, funny, thoughtful, thoughtless, violent, hopeful, self-righteous, self-conscious, self-deprecating, self-gratifying, selfish, rich, poor, indifferent, profoundly confused. We are liars, thieves, workers, students, teachers, artists, murderers, dreamers, writers, intimidators, oppressors, family.

There is only Us.

"You" and "me" are just different points of view.
- Chuang Tzu (trans. Freke)

What is the difference between a patriot and a terrorist? Who's side you're on.
- (paraphrased) Tom Clancy

The version I'm more familiar with is...

One nation's terrorist is another nation's freedom fighter.
