AND NOW …”OCCUPY TOGETHER” AND HEIDI LITTLE “SHINE”!
October 21, 2011
IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS I’VE BEEN READING ABOUT THE “OCCUPY TOGETHER” MOVEMENT, WHERE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE GATHERED TO PROTEST AGAINST INEQUALITY, MONETARY DISFUNCTION, AND THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE.
MY FRIEND SINGER SONGWRITER, HEIDI LITTLE AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS AND I WONDERED HOW LONG IT WILL IT BE BEFORE THE PEACEFUL MOVEMENT ESCALATES INTO VIOLENCE?
Heidi said,”I have always had hope and our future nestled in my heart. I have always spoken and acted out against injustice on all levels. Our hearts and minds have seen and taken in so much devastation, killing, brutality. And all the while I wrote the songs.
Love and care is welling up in the hearts and minds of us all. And not a second too soon. With all of our social and environmental concerns, the growing debates on funding wars when schools are closing and people are starving. It ends with love, compassion and care.
I am sure you have seen the same shocking, brutal footage of police brutality amongst the peaceful people in our city’s and streets, I would never claim to be so naïve as to believe there weren’t people out there just to cause trouble for troubles sake. Unacceptable !! No one is allowed to touch another person to cause bodily harm. It is illegal. And no one is allowed to do that. I cannot stress this factor enough . “ If we just stand, hold hands and smile, not even a word needs to be uttered. Just steel iron will “ No one can do anything to a person doing that without being in the wrong.
I have come to learn that In this co creative world, we get what we think. If we think this movement will make change for the positive, it will ! If we believe that our prayers and hopes are going out to the government and law enforcement so they understand and make the appropriate changes it will ! If we think that each little thing we do for others helps it does! Wherever our intentions are directed they connect ! For better or for worse. How do we want this to turn out? What is the elegant solution? We have all heard it this past week. Stop funding the war, and put the money back into the schools and the people. Rebuilding, reconstructing that which no longer serves the people and the earth. If killing is legal, we can make anything good stick. And last.
I have been watching the change spread across the globe. And it makes me excited and happy, it gives me great hope, and every day I say the same prayer: God bless the people of the world with clean water, sustainable food, education, health care, dental care, suitable housing, positive role models and care providers for all, clean energy, affordable standards of living, and country’s, states, and city’s that take care of the people first. We came here to be together. No more divide and conquer.
United we shall overcome.
Thanks Artie for involving me in the beauty you are creating. We don’t need any more violence, we need love. And that my friend is all I will stand for.
In love and light your friend in music and positively transforming the planet Heidi Little.
