I’d like a quiet one, please.
Is that possible?
Anything is possible, right?
But we need to speak up
For a revolution.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Children. Animals. Planet Earth.
But the planet is speaking to us.
Are we listening?
So we must speak for the planet.
Sing for the birds.
Dance for the children.
Hope. Believe. Speak.
Try to speak with kindness
Not with hate.
Whenever you can,
Strive for peace,
But not peace at any cost.
Balance the cost.
We each make a choice
Every day. Every hour.
All is not lost.
There are still possibilities.
Perhaps we may not go quietly.
Can we just go without screaming?
I keep wanting to add something, to clarify…. Maybe we do need to scream. Maybe some things are screamworthy. This just reflects my stream of consciousness. I don’t like loud. Chanting is good. Singing is good.
Sing it with me: “All we are saying, is give peace a chance.”
I’m stepping out of the stream a bit now, because I found this relatively short TED talk about a quiet revolution. Susan Cain talks about quiet leadership and empowering introverts for the benefit of all. She offers this quote from Mahatma Gandhi:
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is……. “rev.” Use “rev” or find a word that contains it. Have fun! Thanks, Linda!
