SONGS AROUND THE WORLD

Another post about ‘Playing for Change‘.

As I looked through my online feeds I found another new video.

I started searching and it truly brought a smile to my face.

I searched my music library, found it and it’s already downloaded to my cellphone.

Enjoy today’s music video.

Forget about your worries for a few minutes. Let the music enfold you!

Song Around The World

“I remember having a daydream about the opening acoustic guitar part of “All Along The Watchtower” ending with a Native American scream and a big native drum on the downbeat.

That was the spark to assemble one of our biggest and deepest Songs Around The World.

From Beirut to New Orleans to the Lakota Nation musicians play and sing like a musical army determined to stop suffering and greed all over the world. As a society we need to get back to our roots and connect deeper with our ancestors and native people in general so we can find the wisdom we need to move forward as a human race.

WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.

WATER IS LIFE

(Mni Wiconi)

Mni Wiconi (Lakota for “Water is Life”)

A few weeks ago, early January, the Hollywood sign altered to read ‘Hollyweed‘.

Armed with four tarpaulins, a prankster had climbed Mount Lee under the cover of night to edit the iconic landmark, and changed it to “HOLLYWeeD.”

Wouldn’t it have been awesome if, instead, it read ‘Mni Wiconi’?

Just sayin’

~MY BELIEFS~

I stand with my Lakota and Dakota brothers and sisters because I believe the central question of the creation story is at the heart of their lament and their protest:

What will we do with the blessing of power God has given us?

This is a particularly poignant God-question for those of us who have the power of privilege in our country and the world.

Something to think about …. “Dakota Pipeline suspension …. you think they’d stop? …. Really? …. “!!

~~December 8, 2016~~ 

HOPING TO BE WRONG

Not holding my breath!

How many times has “David” really beaten “Goliath”?

Winter is upon them. There are blizzard conditions there.

Obama will be president until January 2016.

Then … we all know what happens.

Hoping!

Dakota Access Pipeline

What happens next?

On Sunday afternoon, December 4, tribe members and their allies cried tears of joy after the US Army said it would not – for now – allow the pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.
The Army says the plan should be carefully restudied, and alternative routes should be more deeply considered.

The Army’s statement does not rule out approval for the current plan in the future. And with President Obama leaving office in January, many questions still remain about what’s next for the project.

The Obama admin is halting the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline under its current route. This is an incredible victory for the Standing Rock water protectors and all their allies worldwide.

We did it!

One victory in the climate wars.

Expect more to come.

STANDING TOGETHER IN PRAYER

Many people would agree that prayer alone will not solve all of our problems, but to the water protectors at Standing Rock, direct action is considered sacred. Prayer can be action. To live one’s life as if it were a prayer is a very powerful way to engage in the world around us.

Indigenous spirituality acknowledges that all of life is interconnected through nature, knowing that humans have a responsibility to steward and protect the land. Standing Rock’s resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline has become globally symbolic of the struggle to protect our environment from the heartless exploitation of extraction industries that threaten water, land, air, and life itself.

For the first time in history, we are seeing a unified global movement to stand and act in solidarity with our indigenous relatives to protect the sacred.

This is your opportunity to participate in something truly inspired and hopeful, to pray with Standing Rock!

DAVID AND GOLIATH

The David and Goliath story is one of the most powerful analogies a communicator can use to describe an adversarial scenario between imbalanced competing interests.

Especially where the weaker party is deemed to be the more righteous competitor.

David and Goliath terminology has been used to describe a wide range of business, sports and political activities.

I can’t find a better application of this analogy than to what is happening in North Dakota.

Native Americans Protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline
“We have not been consulted in an appropriate manner about … the traditional cultural properties, sites, or landscapes vital to our identity and spiritual well-being.”
