2010 Guantanamo fast: Day 1

“It’s not just fasting from food—we’re not supposed to be some sort of athlethes of fasting. It’s also fasting from our own egos.” –Bill Streit, from our morning reflection. We’ll see how the ego fasting goes…

Reminded today that this time last year in DC we were told dozens of times a day, “Go home! It’s closed! He closed it!” We’re pretty far from that now.

Had an evening discussion at Georgetown Law School with lawyers, activists, and curious passersby about “Where do we go from here?” My favorite comments were about “the importance of telling stories,” of not just piling on the facts and logic but engaging the imagination.
