I’m going to change the world!

I’m going to change the world! Yeah you heard me, I am going to change the world. I am going to do so by changing my small part of it as I work to improve, rebuild, strengthen and live a better life, for by doing so I can and will inspire others to do so. My world affects theirs, thus change is a chain reaction.

Six degrees of separation, a theory that everyone in the entire world is connected through just six people you know. Imagine if you inspire just six people a day, that would be 180 people in a month. Now imagine that, for that same month, those six people did the same thing and each inspire six people they knew and then those six did the same and so on…just for one month. In ten days that is over ten million people, assuming we can keep the chain reaction going.

Voting and politics aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who has the right platform.

Social and welfare programs aren’t going to change the world. We have lots of these already in place and yet the problems increase.

Taxes and money aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy spending it wrong and it’s never enough for when we spend it right!

War and conquest aren’t going to change the world. Why do we think senseless killing of other nations is going to improve or change anything?

Religion isn’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who’s is right.

We’ve been trying all these things for centuries and the result is the same, a world in turmoil. Nothing changes. True change is within you. Only when a person changes and inspires others to do the same, only then will we see the world change.

I vote for a better world. I will support a cause that truly helps someone better themselves. My money and resources will go to bettering my life and those around me when I can. I will fight against injustice and oppression. Humanity and kindness to others is my religion. It’s time for a chain reaction!

The Last Stand

The day will come when humanity will make its last stand. The air raid sirens will wail one last time and then in a brief moment, it will all be over. What will we leave behind?

When the last fire goes out, when the smoke clears, when the dust settles, and the last brick falls, what will be left to remember us by? What testament will be left to tell our story? What legacy will be left as our final message to whoever finds it? Will our story even be worth preserving? How will we be remembered?

I tell you now, this is our last stand! If we fail to change course then I fear the day will come when you will hear the sirens wail, a loud rumble in the sky followed by a bright flash and then… nothing! As yourself: How will you remember me? What is my legacy to those that follow?

REVOLUTION!

2

START THE REVOLUTION!

When America was founded our founding fathers created various documents one of which is the Declaration of Independence! This document was in itself a declaration of war, a drawing of the line in the sand that states we have had enough! Enough of the government being in our business, enough of being over taxed, enough of limited or no freedom, enough of a specific religion being forced upon us and this was in 1776!

It is therefore my duty as an American to say I have had enough. I hereby state my own Declaration of Independence and therefore remove myself from the Republican/Democrat train wreck and proceed to seek out other, better choices.

I have had enough and draw the line in the sand. Starting this November I will go into the voting booth and start a revolution of real change as I vote for “Other”. The tea is going into the harbor!

You can’t have different voting for the same! At some point you have to say enough and make change really happen. It starts with you!

THINK DIFFERENT…I DARE YOU!

What I Feel!

As a writer and philosopher I carry the heaviest burden and the deepest pain of seeing a nation I cannot change, a people I cannot save, a world who’s future is bleak and dark who’s destiny I cannot prevent.

 No one can ever understand how I feel inside and what it is I carry in my heart. Only one like me will understand this burden and pain that resides within me.

All I can do is the one thing I know how…write. Write in hope that somewhere someone who can direct these changes will see, understand and hear the message. I write in hopes that maybe, just maybe, I can make a difference even if small. Even the smallest spark can start the greatest of fires!

Maybe my small spark of desire for change will inflame the world with the fires of hope and change! Maybe not today, but maybe tomorrow the fires of change will rage!

 I carry a burden no one can take from me and it is heavy.
I feel a pain no one can cure and it runs deep in my soul.
I carry a hope for a hopeless future.
I carry the spark that could very well set the world ablaze!

True Revolution

True revolution does not require weapons of war or destruction, but a change in precepts to seek out justice in the unjust and to bring about that which is right from all that is wrong. To bring about true ideals that balance lives of those who live in said nation with values of fairness, justice and wisdom.

True revolution begins in ones heart as the soul wearies of unjust acts by those in power and seeks to correct the destructive course of the nation of which they reside to bring about true peace and prosperity.

True revolution comes when one chooses to rise up and say NO MORE, that this has gone on long enough! When one desires hope for humanity in an inhumane world so inasmuch that one will stand even when at their weakest to bring strength to others just as weak and guidance to those lost of heart and hope.

True revolution begins with the spoken word or the written lines of ideals, hopes, and dreams of those who wish to bring about change, true change.

True revolution begins when we elect true leaders that support the ideals of fairness, justice, hope and the dreams of the nation of which they are to serve.

I now stand and draw the line that now is the time to start this revolution to change the direction of which we are headed. Election day is coming, stand your ground, bridge the gap, and stop letting those in power cross the line.

True revolution begins when we finally decide we want change and work as one nation to do just that. No more racial, political nor religious divides!

We are one or we are none!

The Final Transmission – Goodbye 2016

Here it is the end of 2016. What do I see for 2017 and beyond? The same old stuff…Hate, religious prejudice, political divide, racial tensions. There will be attacks, more hate, more riots and a repeat of all we’ve seen yesterday and today. We will point fingers and blame the other side and ignore our own influence.
 
History repeat itself because we never learn what works and what doesn’t. We never learn and can only hope future generations will, but it’s us they learn from. Sad.
 
It’s not a question if there is life out there in the universe, it’s a question of “Are we the best it could do?”. Are we? We could be!
 
If we are the first of life to appear in this universe then we are off to a sad and sorry start and can only hope we change and do better before we reach out to other worlds.
 
If we are the last of life in the universe then maybe we came from somewhere where they didn’t learn as well and are a sad and final testimony to the life that once existed. Or we were kicked out!
 
During the dark ages scientific development was delayed by centuries, at least 600 years. Imagine where we would be right now! Imagine where we would be if we stopped the hate, the prejudice, the religious and political divides, stopped expecting everyone to live by our rules, standards, religion and political ideals.
 
Imagine what 7 billion people could do if they worked together to improve, advance and support each other. We have the resources, the technology, and the ability to do so.
 
It starts and stops with us.
 
But we’re too busy wanting our political ideals to be the rule of the land. We’re too busy want our religious book to be the law. We’re too bust thinking our religion is what the country should follow. We’re too busy thinking our idea is better and reject all others solely over the fact the other person isn’t in the same political party as we are. We’re to busy fighting over something a simple as skin color. Why does my color determine what I am? IT DOESN’T!  Neither does religion or politics.
 
We’re too busy punishing over differences and not busy enough finding common ground to build on. Believe in my god, religion, political ideals or you’re not good enough.
 
Well then I guess I’m not good enough. And I’m proud of that! If I need to align with your list of what it takes to be valued, then I don’t want to be good enough for you!
 
We can do better. So why don’t we?
