As we flush the Toilet from the last 8 Years of the Bush Administration please consider the following thought from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”
Love, Life & Peace as we toast a new day dawning!!!

1. All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.

2. Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

3. It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and their bodies to the task.

George Carlin shows us … Ourselves
NotA Message by George Carlin:
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve added years to life not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We’ve conquered outer space but not inner space.
We’ve done larger things, but not better things.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.
Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
If you don’t send this to other people….Who cares?
When Gandhi marched the Indians to the sea to get their own salt and avoid the British tax on salt. The British beat the Indians down… Gandhi was very clear not to fight back but still to stand strong as peaceful warriors holding their moral and ethical ground. They embarrassed the British into leaving the country less then 1 year later… The British understood that their time there was over… the British were no longer welcome…
Well I am not sure when our government became the enemy of the people but with all that is going on it would seem that the government is definitely not looking out for our / Main Street interests. Our government has been asleep at the wheel for 8 years now giving us the wrong information…
Our leadership has been pushing the concept of Happiness through consumption instead of through service as well as thoughts of creating fear by chasing security… scaring us at every opportunity, in every speech!
We should instead understand what Benjamin Franklin professed with “if we forgo liberty for security we deserve neither“!
So the BIG QUESTION of BIG MIND is what are the symbols we as a free people use in this day and age to reflect, what is going on in our government is NOT OK… How do we empower our selves and our message to get back to the original intention of…. We hold these truths to be self evident, the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness….
I love that this Iraqi reporter expressed in a moment of peaceful fearless disregard for his own safety what most of us would have liked to … he has created a Tiananmen Square moment in history… We need to follow his ambitious lead to free speech for that is where freedom and liberty are found. Remember he threw a shoe not a bomb. We all know how disgusting and lawless our administration has behaved, torture, no oversight, etc… They have brought us to the abyss! What do we do now to take a stand and begin the healing of our fragile and injured planet and people?
Please share your thoughts and ideas here as comments… We need to begin a dialogue on the internet of collective consciousness! We need to figure out what our march to the sea is and how we can peacefully and forcefully get the message across that what is going on is NOT OK! We need to get back to the intention of what a patriot is and what it is to be an American as well as a global citizen!
