And I am NOT complicit.
I believe in human rights, that refugees have a right to shelter and protection, not persecution and detention.
I believe women are equal and should have equal representation in government, media, sports, work and opportunity. I know this is not the reality. But it needs to change.
I believe we have an obligation to this planet to care for it. It has nurtured us for millennia. But if we don’t stop our insatiable exploitation of its resources it will die. And we with it.
I believe the purpose of the economy is to serve its people, not enslave the people to the economy.
I believe governments are answerable to their people.
I believe History teaches us lessons which many ignore.
Things need to change.
I need to speak out.
One candle in the darkness looking for others.
I know you’re there. Perhaps together we can build a better world.
This is the first of many candles, match- strikes, flares and calls out into the wilderness. Born of a feeling of frustration and hopelessness with our current government and a society which seems blind and apathetic in the face of the suffering of others.
Please feel free to join me.
An ocean of flickering lights will bring hope to many, including ourselves.
We CAN change the world!
