Be the Change​.​.​.

about

I once attended a circle session on domestic violence. The facilitators shared an interesting view on how our personal choices could be affecting the level of violence in our world…

lyrics

We protest violence 
In our neighborhoods 
In our schools 
but 
Watch the latest action thriller blockbuster movie 
Consuming violence for entertainment 

We decry violence 
Against our women 
Against our children 
but 
Tune into TV shows where women beat each other up and down with violent language 

We march against police brutality and gun violence 
but 
Play video games based on brutality and gun violence 

Technology may have replaced the Roman colosseum 
but 
Our society’s appetite for violence remains 
News headlines reflect this 

Unfortunately 
I believe we will continue to lose souls to violence 
Until our societal addiction to violence is confronted and treated 

but 
Who is society? 

It is easy to point a finger 
but 
For every finger I point at another 
3 fingers point back at me 

It is time for us to treat our own personal addiction to violence 
In whatever form it appears 
With all the commitment and compassion that overcoming addiction requires 

If 
We want to see change in our world 
We must be change in our world.
