    With Jesus Christ as my Savior, I share these lyrics from Cat Stevens – since the inspired message applies to All:
    Changes IV:

    Don’t you feel a change a coming
    From another side of time
    Breaking down the walls of silence
    Lifting shadows from your mind
    Placing back the missing mirrors
    That before you couldn’t find
    Filling mysteries of emptiness
    That yesterday left behind

    And we all know it’s better
    Yesterday has past
    Now let’s all start the living
    For the one that’s going to last
    And we all know it’s better
    Yesterday has past
    Now let’s all start the living
    For the one that’s going to last

    Don’t you feel the day is coming
    That will stay and remain
    When your children see the answers
    That you saw the same
    When the clouds have all gone
    There will be no more rain
    And the beauty of all things
    Is uncovered again

    Don’t you feel the day is coming
    And it won’t be too soon
    When the people of the world
    Can all live in one room
    When we shake off the ancient
    Shake off the ancient chains of our tomb
    We will all be born again
    Of the eternal womb

    Paula Cole: Be Somebody

    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference

    Little boy caught in a drive-by
    Witnessed the killer who made his daddy die,
    And ’cause he identified and signed the dotted line,
    He could feel it in his stomach, he signed away his life
    Little boy who once was the leader of his class
    The little source of joy, always neatly dressed
    Now would hang his head and be left crying at his desk,
    Was found with his mother, lying in her lap
    With two bullets in his chest

    And, oh my god, what is this madness?
    I will not let it kill by gladness
    And,oh my god, what is this madness?
    My joy inside will send this message

    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference,
    For we all are children of the Mother
    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference,
    For we all are children of the Father

    Outspoken man, leading sisters and brothers,
    Picked himself up from hustling,drugs and gutters
    Doing time on the inside, he found a higher power
    Now, back with a mission to help us help each other

    Respected from bourgeoisie to homeless in the street
    From universities, Africa, the Middle East
    And through the threats of death he spoke truth and set men free
    But the power of the truth made enemies of the weak
    He was killed by his own people

    And, oh my god, what is this madness?
    I will not let it kill my gladness
    And, oh my god, what is this madness?
    My joy inside will send this message

    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference,
    For we all are children of the Mother
    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference
    for we all are children

    Ignite This Fire inside, this light that is the Truth
    Shake off the system’s chains, no longer be their fool
    In the face of brutality, show the other cheek
    Trigger-happy policing will never kill our dignity

    And, oh my god, what is this madness?
    I will not let it kill my gladness
    And, oh my god, what is this madness?
    My joy inside will send this message

    Lift up your heart and See
    Open your heart and See
    Lift up your voice and Sing…

    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference,
    For we all are children of the Mother
    I want to be somebody
    I want to make a difference,
    For we all are children of the Father

    Thank you for sharing your dedication, insights and goals – as a means of inspiring awakened actions.

    Gandhi: “Nonviolence does not mean meek submission to the will of the evil doer, but it means the pitting of one’s whole soul against the will of the tyrant. Working under this law of our being, it is possible for a single individual to defy the whole might of an unjust empire to save his honour, his religion, his soul and lay . . . the foundations for that empire’s fall or its regeneration.” http://www.facebook.com/pages/Americans-Who-Tell-the-Truth/387832150829

    Gibran:
    And as a single leaf turns not yellow but with the silent knowledge of the whole tree,
    So the wrong-doer cannot do wrong without the hidden will of you all.

    Jesus:
    Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
    Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall be filled.
    Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
    Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
    Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Matthew 5:5

    Do you believe in speaking Truth to Power – no matter what level of stature the powered hold? Do you believe in Fighting the Good Fight – without backing down, regardless of the level of evil you may face? Do you believe the First Amendment is a cornerstone of our country – and that it is on the verge of being nullified in a series of final (corporate) steps? If so, Stand Up Now – while your Voices can still be Heard.
