OUR WORLD SOCIETY TODAY IS GRIPPED WITH FEAR AND VIOLENCE-- AND IS THE VERY THING THAT IS PUSHING US TO FIND PEACEFUL ANSWERS. LIVING IN FEAR IS HELL ON EARTH AND IS SOMETHING WE CHOOSE TO CARRY AROUND WITHIN US AND PASS ON TO OUR CHILDREN.

WE WISH TO BRING THIS MESSAGE TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN, ANY AGE GROUP; WITH MUSIC, ART, STREET THEATER, EDUCATION AND SHARING.

FOCUS: TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS NON- VIOLENTLY --- SPEND LESS ON WAR MACHINE AND MORE ON PEOPLE --- SAVE THE CONSTITUTION --- PATRIOIT ACT I AND 2 -- KILLS OUR DEMOCRACY --- BE A CITIZEN --- VOTE END WAR ON DRUGS --- WAR ON THE POOR --- WAR ON OUR PLANET --- EDUCATE AND ENLIGHTEN. REPLACE FEAR, HATE, MISUNDERSTANDING WITH COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE AND REAP THE BENEFITS IN LOVE AND JOY; WAITING -- SLEEPING IN THE HEART OF EVERY HUMAN BEING.

MANY GREAT TEACHERS HAVE GONE BEFORE US; CHRIST, BUDDHA, GANDHI, MARTIN LUTHER KING -- MANY ARE LIVING TODAY; BISHOP TUTU, NELSON MANDELA,THE GANDHI CENTER, THE M.L.KING CENTER, THE CARTER CENTER WE MUST FACE THE LOAD WE CARRY ON THE ROAD OF HUMAN EVOLUTION NO MATTER WHAT BELIEF SYSTEM WE HOLD ON TO. WE ARE ALL SPIRITUAL BEINGS AND NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT LIKE IT!!!!!!!!

REMEMBER WHAT RESISTS --- PERSISTS AND WHAT IS LOOKED AT DISAPPEARS CHALLENGE THE SELF CRITICAL VOICE INSIDE AND REPLACE IT WITH COMPASSIONATE ACCEPTANCE --

-- COMMUNICATION IS LISTENING --

" I KNOW NOT WITH WHAT WEAPONS WORLD WAR III WILL BE FOUGHT, BUT WORLD WAR IV WILL BE FOUGHT WITH STICKS AND STONES." ALBERT EINSTEIN

"PATRIOTISM IS THE LAST REFUGE OF A SCOUNDREL." SAMUEL JOHNSON

VIOLENCE STOPS THOUGHT. HENCE ITS POPULARITY AS A PAIN KILLER." MASON COOLEY

WE CAN PRETEND THAT WE ARE PURELY INNOCENT AND THAT THE WORLDS HATRED FOR US IS "UNFATHOMABLE." BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS OF POOR,ENSLAVED OR OCCUPIED PEOPLE IS NOT NUCLEAR PHYSICS. ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS THE MORAL AND POLITICAL WILL." DANIEL C. MAGUIRE AUTHOR OF THE MORAL CHOICE AND ETHICS FOR A SMALL PLANET FEAR PARALYZES -- CONSCIENCE MOBILIZES COMPASSION AND INSIGHT

WHY ARE WE SO SHOCKED WHEN A VIOLENT RESPONSE FINNALY COMES BACK TO US? ITS BECAUSE WE ARE IN DENIAL ABOUT OUR WAY OF LIFE AND THE COSTS IT EXACTS ON THE REST OF THE WORLD--SEE HOPEDANCE.ORG
