"We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children."
The issue of equal rights is part of a larger statement about justice for all. About the practice of our earth stewardship.
See today where you are forgetting your dream and pick it back up and share it with a brother. Join together. As ACIM says an idea grows stronger when shared and there is nothing stronger than an agreement between two people.
It is time to join together. It is time to practice the principles of Non Violence in the pursuit of a universal oneness where we know we are our neighbor and every day we wake up we have the privilege of making their lives better.
On the planet today there are one billion people who live in poverty. Who struggle to feed themselves and their families.
THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE.
When a brother is in trouble, we are all in trouble.
We know better, we can do better.
Hiding in the bosom of the cult of culture is not going to do it. No more living in the delusion of separation and being different. No more blinders. It is time for the truth. Recognizing our commonalities. Recognizing our note in the song of the universe enabling the harmony of love.
Starting here. Starting now. Make a choice to practice kindness.
