a few days ago america celebrated the july 4th independence day
independence from what?
iys the celebration of independence from british rule, and the revolutionary war. but are we not in a war today? and depending on britian and other countries to win a war on terror?
are we not also dependent on the countries we are at war with for their oil?
america celebrates independence day with rockets red glair and bombs bursting in air (fireworks)
the loud boom boom boom and flashing of pretty lights to make you go oooohh ahhh awesome re just a pretty version of the horrors of war.
at rainbow gatherings around the world, in every country on earth we celebrate interdependence in silence
a silent prayer for peace.
and we recognize all peaceful people of the earth, no matter what land they were born in or what dirt beneath their tows they call home, as brothers and sisters, not independent but interdependent. interdependent for our own survival, and the health of this beautiful planet we call home.
we recognize that war is not possible when we respect one another as family, as dependent on one another as a individual, nation, and indeed world.
if you can't make it to a gathering for the july 4th prayer for peace in silence, then by all means go enjoy the boom boom boom glorification of war, but before you do, spend a few hours in silent contemplation.
which do you want to celebrate? unending war forever more? or a future of peace, unity and love amongst all people?
those people you call enemies could be your best friends if you sit down and try to see eye to eye.
