Let’s Focus On Working For Positive Change
Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, and all creatures great and small,
I have read your comments. Our hearts are revealed. We are sick of hatred, wrongful judgment of people, victimization of the innocent, unequal justice, racism, stereotyping.
There is a fear across America that our children will grow up not being able to go out in the sunshine for fear of someone with a gun.
We have to worry when we go shopping that someone will shoot us for stepping on their foot and defend themselves by saying they were in fear.
We have to worry about people who don’t like texting, loud music, or seeing a person with Alzheimer’s in their front yard and because they have a gun, act on their dislike.
Terrorism on America’s soil is here – we now share in the trauma with those countries where suicide bombers walk the streets.
There are times we feel hopeless and helpless.
Know what? We are the answer. Just wanting a peaceful existence gives us an advantage. We have the power. We are the majority. We have the power to boycott stores and companies that allow conceal carry. We have the power to vote and what’s more, we have the power to support political candidates who agree with us and want the same things that we want. They need not be of either of the major political parties. It might take 4 or 8 years, but we can do it.
Look around us – even right here. We are a diverse people who share the same interests and belief in equality. We are men and women; atheists, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, spiritual. We are Black, Brown, Red, White, Yellow and some combinations. We are homosexual, heterosexual, transexual.
This coming week, I plan on blogging about organizations and groups that seek what we do. Let’s extend our efforts to make this world a better place. If any of you are already involved in an organization or group whose goal is to achieve positive things, please let us know by posting it in comments.
