To start the day …. “The Power of One”!!

~~January 15, 2015~~ 

This video has been presented before in this blog.

The message is so intense, real and to the point that we wish to share it again. I read a post by Mavadelo this morning which reminded me of this video. A previous post about perpetual war has taken me down the path that something needs to happen to change our world. They say …. “be the change”.  

It all has to be at the personal level. Many times it seem like an impossible task. Many times despair, doubt and disappointment set in. Yet … what will happen if we give up. The battle to improve is endless and against immense foes.

Never give up!

“You are one. You are unique. You are important. You are special.

One song can spark a moment. One flower can wake the dream. One tree can start a forest. One bird can herald spring. One smile begins a friendship. One handclasp lifts a soul. One star can guide a ship at sea. One word can set the goal. One vote can change a nation. One sunbeam can light a room. One candle wipes out darkness. One laugh will conquer gloom. On step starts each journey. One word must start each prayer. One hope will raise our spirits. One touch can show you care. One voice can speak with wisdom. One heart can know what’s true. One life can make the difference.

It’s up to you. Be bold. Be courageous. Be proud. Be yourself. 

Learn. Grow. Teach. Dream. Inspire. Explore. Hope. Pray. Listen. Create. Help. Serve. Motivate. Discover. Share. Believe. Achieve. Wonder. Pursue. Love. Protect. Experience.

You can make a difference.

Pass it on ….. “

“Tyler Blaine Genneken was the inspiration in making this video. Tyler was a young boy in our community in Indiana, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in the Summer of 2006. After a 40 month battle with Cancer, sadly he passed away. He was 14 years old. Before Tyler died, his story and his request that others help him fight Cancer, resulted in hundreds of units of blood being donated, and more than 2,000 people joining “Be The Match” (the national bone marrow registry). He is a Hero.”

Perpetual war …. fuel for terrorism!!

I found a video on my Facebook feed this morning. It’s a video made by this company: Brave New Films. 

Brave New Films is a new media company based in Culver City, California. The brainchild of filmmaker Robert Greenwald, BNF produces progressive feature-length documentaries and investigative videos “to educate, influence and empower viewers to take action around issues that matter.”

I think it’s very interesting and points out a very important issue: the state of perpetual war that the country has been in for innumerable years. I only wished that the main person addressed had been some other than President Obama but it so happens that he’s the current Commander in Chief so the “ball is in his court” now.

The message could be directed to any leader of a major power.

“Since 1980, we have militarily intervened at least 35 times in more than 27 countries. We keep bombing, we continue spending trillions of dollars, but we’re no safer as a result.”

~How Perpetual War Fuels Terrorism~

~Published on Sep 18, 2014~

Because perpetual war fuels terrorism.

And yet, President Obama now has the same plan for Iraq and Syria.

We’ve tried arming “friendly” rebels before. We armed the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets. They later became Al Qaeda and the Taliban, who not only attacked us, but terrorized their own people. We ramped up strikes in Yemen in 2009. Since then, the country has seen MORE terrorist attacks, not fewer.

When we only respond with military force today, we create tomorrow’s enemy. The kid whose house was bombed by an American drone will grow up to hate America. Maybe one day he’ll fight against us.

Perpetual war does not make us safer.

Share this because President Obama needs to stop and think.

How does this end?

This are the responses on the Facebook post (caps and all):

BEING IN DENIAL IS TRULY BLIND …. So if America did not respond to the Japanese attack of WWll … that would have been the better recourse. So if America didn’t drop the atomic bomb on JAPAN to end the war would have been the better recourse. If Franklin Roosevelt were still alive to comment on current world standing what do you think he would say? How about the likes of Winston Churchill, what would his comments be. Europe almost got bombed back to the stone age by the Germans. The Japanese killed EVERYONE in the Pacific they came across. Do you think for ONE SECOND that using EXCESSIVE FORCE was not needed to WIN THE WAR on both fronts. ‘IF YOU DONT LEARN FROM HISTORY … HISTORY IS BOUND TO REPEAT ITSELF”.

IF THERE WASNT AN OVERLY FORCEFUL RESPONSE DELIVERED BY THE ALLIES DURING WWll WE WOULD ALL BE SPEAKING GERMAN OR JAPANESE RIGHT NOW ….

Unlike many candy-asses don’t think war is REAL nor can it come to your door step. I DO. All I have to do is sit back and hear my MOM talk about the horrors of the Vietnam War. THATS WERE I’M FROM. I HAVE REMEBERED ALL MY MOM’S STORIES SINCE I WAS LITTLE. I don’t have read about it in a book or live in some sorta bubble SUCH AS YOU. Our family seen the atrocities first hand. Suicide bombings of GIs in Siagon … complete villages murdered by the Viet Cong. Dead bodies liter the streets during the TET OFFENSIVE of 1968.

And much more that I do not care to post.
