You’ve got to FEEL.

Today was a bit of a challenge for me.  Against my better judgment,  I listened to Dick Cheney’s interview.   I was disgusted at his support of torture and his comment, “I have NO respect for the United Nations”.  Then I thought about that and realized with recent missteps, the United Nations has no respect for itself!  It’s so crazy, 

It could make you go numb.

THAT is the nature of the beast.  PAY ATTENTION!

We can become numb two ways.  We can be bombarded with so much junk that we don’t know which way to turn, or by having things happen outside our immediate caring circles that we would otherwise resist if it occurred WITHIN our circles. 

I remember Newtown  CT.

It’s been two years.   Why did I go?  I’m in NJ.  I don’t have kids of my own.  Why?

Why are people marching?  What’s the fuss? Why are people other than black males protesting?

Because they FEEL.

Something happens when you realize you’re not alone, that there are others with your values, beliefs, and experiences. You both become stronger and stand a little taller.

We’re at a tipping point in our societies, and the majority is on our side.   You will only see it if you FEEL, and it’s the only way we can win this seen and unseen war.  My challenge to you, precious reader, is to care about someone or something outside of yourself and your immediate circle of caring today, and take action to support it. In a world that often seems hopeless, FEEL.  Each one of us is hope.  Each one of us is the dawn.   It will take each one of us to tip the scales right.  Alone we are a drop of water, together we are a raging river.
