John Kerry was very clear about his feelings toward Edward Snowden today.

He called him a coward, suggesting that he should man up and come home. While I have mixed feelings about what Snowden did, he was certainly no coward.

Our previous president is a war criminal. His lies caused the death of hundred of thousands of innocent people and a refugee problem that left millions homeless. If Kerry had suggested we treat him like the monster he is and make him pay for all the carnage he knowingly left behind, I do not remember him speaking up. But when someone exposes this country's dirty laundry, he finds his voice. That sounds like a coward to me.

I was in the middle of watching the press conference at the White House

when something came up and I put the show on pause. About an hour later I went back to hear the rest of the press conference. The frozen picture on my TV set suddenly gave me a feeling of hope that I have not had about the state of world affairs for a long time.

There were two of the world's most powerful leaders, their faces frozen in time (well at least an hour), and it suddenly gave me a feeling of hope for our future. The two powerful leaders were a female prime minister and and African American male President. This in itself does not mean that all is well with the world, but at least it shows that we (the world community) can change if we just manage to keep electing the right people for the job.
