Let’s Talk Revolution

Standard

http://link%20below Be the change you want to see–pick up where he left off!

Jefferson“A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.

A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just.” This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We Are All Family

Standard

“When indeed shall we learn that we are all related to one another, that we are all members of one body?  Until the spirit of love for our fellow man, regardless of race, color or creed, shall fill the world, making real in our lives and our deeds the actuality of human brotherhood–until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.” – Helen Keller

Send loving prayer to Boston, send loving prayer to the world….pray for respect, understanding and empathy. Pray to the positive and powerful being that you believe in that all lost souls, lost minds, and all damaged hearts receive love and positive guidance to walk through life in the light of the Creator.
