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?

The Final Transmission – You Can’t Stop The Signal

I am just a man, a body of flesh and blood. A body can be killed, but an idea can live forever. You can take my life, but what I’ve influenced, the ideas I’ve shared and the ideals I’ve created will live forever.
You can imprison me, lock me away, but you can’t imprison an idea, my mind is mine and you can’t have it.
You can’t stop an idea, you can’t destroy an ideal, you can’t diminish that which is engraved into the stones of eternity. Once an idea burns as fire you can’t stop it, you can’t stop the signal.
My ideas, the ideals I hold, that which I dream to see and how I feel is already out there, floating in the digital void amassed and shared by many.
You can take my freedom, you can take my life, but you will never take my ideals, my ideas and my message. It’s out there and will echo into the edges of eternity long after you’ve been silenced. You can’t stop the signal, it goes everywhere and therefor so do I.
I am a writer of free thought and I stand at the door of shortsightedness and oppression and bar you from crossing the threshold.
I write not for you of today, but of them of tomorrow so that they may look back and say no more! Let them see the misdeeds of our past and present in hopes that maybe this time, it will be done right.
This is my message, this Final Transmission, for the generations to come. Hopefully one day, we will finally get it and see once and for all what works and what doesn’t. One only has to look at today to see the road for tomorrow…and change it!

The Final Transmission – Enough

Am I not enough?

Must I truly match and stand by your religion, politics, color, race, or other life preferences? Must I stand perfectly inline with you to matter, to be enough?

Is it not enough that I serve to better myself and my fellow man, to step out and make difference? Doesn’t’ the mere act of kindness, compassion an love count regardless of who I am?

Is not the world big enough for all of us to exist in our own way, to give in our own way and to be happy as we are, to be as one world improving upon it?

When is enough hatred, bigotry, bullying, and discriminating? When will we finally have enough of separation and loss, pain and hurt, rejection and stupidity?

Why isn’t it enough? Why am I not enough? What is enough? I ask you this!

Am I not enough? If you feel that I am not, then you are not enough and I’ve had enough of you!

The Final Transmission – Does It Matter?

Does it matter? My color, does it matter? My nationality, my beliefs, my political affiliation, does it matter?

My color and culture aren’t the same as you. My beliefs aren’t the same as you. My political beliefs will differ as well, but does it all matter?

I am like you in many other aspects that do matter. I want to live, work and make it threw my life as you do. I want to enjoy my day and live my life as I feel best for me as you do. I have hobbies, likes, dislikes and a desire to live the best life I can as many of you do.

I have hopes, dreams, want to be loved and accepted, but why does it need to be on your terms? I’m not you!

Does it matter I am different? Does it really matter that bad to you? Why should it? I cause you no harm nor do I interfere with your life, so why does it matter I live, believe and am different than you?

So much death and destruction over the years just because of differences. All because a select group of people have this serious need to get over themselves.

What I believe, do and how I live is not up to you nor do your beliefs dictate my life. Some of you might just unfriend me if you knew what I believed and the values I hold. I live, believed and hold different values than some of you…DEAL WITH IT!

You are no one to judge and set the expectation for my life, I do that and I alone. I make the final determination of my values, my life, and my beliefs. I am not here to harm you, if I was, then yes, you may set those expectations and boundaries.

Does it matter really who and what I am? No, it matters that I choose to live a better life each day and seek to help encourage and cause no harm to others.

The hopes, dreams and ideals I hold are for my better and yours as well, that is what matters. Each day I choose to do better, that is what matters!

The Final Transmission – Goodbye America

Goodbye America!

What I write is of no influence by who was elected, for the message will be the same.

Goodbye America where I once played without fear of abduction, where I could run a marathon without fear of attack, where I could go to school without fear of death from gunfire.

Goodbye America for what was once justice is now criminal, what was once unity is now division, what was once hope is now despair and what was once truth is now lie.

Goodbye America, I stand now sadly watching as America quivers and shakes in it’s final death throws for no hope shapes its future any longer. We point, we accuse and we fight among ourselves just because we share different beliefs, religions and political views. Come up with a good idea, but if you’re the wrong party, religion or ideal you will be shot down no matter how good the idea.

Goodbye America, the land of the free that is now the land of the oppressed. We’ve learned to enslave by a label, by color, religion, political party or any other difference we use to control or shoot someone down. We’ve learned to hate for the very same reasons.

Goodbye America, you had a good run but your time is soon at an end. How much longer shall you last, a year, ten years, twenty five or more? Maybe you will make it to the next century but I sincerely doubt you will make it half way at this pace of hate, division, and blinded stupidity we call politics and leadership and I reference not just the president, but all in office, past, present and future, for you fail to lead and instead seek only personal gain and in the end choke the ones who feed you. Who will feed you when we die? Who will hold you up when the foundation is gone?

Goodbye America, whose foundation is crumbling under the weight of lost ideals, hopeless efforts, economical breakdown, and the weight of its own selfish mistakes and choices. We reached the moon and further, but now we can’t even reach each other.

Goodbye America, for the bell has rung its last chime and the bell tower now crumbles and falls to the ground and she shall never ring freedom again as she did before. Have we not learned from the past of what works and what doesn’t? I think not, for we succeed in one thing, repetition of blatant stupidity, denial and lack of accountability.

Goodbye America, for we state how our political beliefs, religion, or other ideals are the solution, yet nothing is solved and the hole gets deeper. We are blind fools if we don’t see the real solution, unity, love, accountability, responsibility, and hard work, that is what brings us back from this brink of death we face.

Goodbye America, for your time has come. You breathe your final breaths and choke on your own failures as a nation. Let us point and blame president, congressman, governor, preacher…yes let us point at anyone but ourselves. We ask others to solve and be responsible for problems we have the full capacity to solve ourselves, but don’t !

Goodbye America, the hole is dug and your casket awaits and you shall be buried soon. Goodbye America, unless some miracle should abound and save you from a timely death.

I, Neal Stone, hereby dedicate myself to write this and more. I write this message not just for present, but future audiences so that maybe we will learn, maybe somewhere in the near future someone will get it and make the change to save the world. I write as philosopher and author for that is my job and duty.

I hereby write The Final Transmission.

More to come.
