A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Reflections on our lack of peace

Written June 12th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

This was my view of the Yachats River at low tide Saturday afternoon. Tranquil scenes like this, and lots of time spent riding bikes, tend to make us forget that the world is not a peaceful place. Then we get word of an event, like the mass shooting in Florida Sunday morning. That reminds us how things really are.


Lots of gun chatter: All but useless

Written December 3rd, 2015 by Hasso Hering

After every mass murder by gunfire, lots people with access to Facebook or some other medium feel compelled to spout off. Hardly anything sensible ever comes out, and we’d be no worse off if everybody just kept his trap shut.
