This is the Age of Aquarius…right?

ENVISION PEACE, HARMONY, AND LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE.

We need comfort, forgiveness, healing, love, patience, joy, guidance, friendship.
We need kindness. We need all these in our lives more than we need to be told we are damned and sinners. We need healers and makers of peace not critics and censors. We need humanitarians. We need kindness otherwise we are going to continue to move from this darkness into a darker darkness.  This is the Age of Aquarius, right? This is the age of increased spirituality and harmony, right?  If this is so, then this is to be an age of ‘holiness and agreement.’ We need more bread and fewer guns. We need a lot more holy men far more than we need little tin gods.  We need light bearers making peace not just envisioning peace. We need makers of peace to ensure harmony throughout the world. We need ‘lovers’ who call to say “I can help bake bread.”

We don’t need media personalities ‘Saving Children’ by creating myths and telling lies that destroy lives. These are little tin gods using some insane argument to save us from our humanness.   We need helpful people in our lives to be there to lift us up when we are down. We don’t need tin gods trying to tear us away from our basic security, our family, our livelihood and our villages.

Yesterday morning I received a disturbing message on Facebook from one of my sons by
another mother. This son lives in Africa, he wrote; “Mama, I’ve been given an eviction letter, I’m to leave my village and never come back.” Sadly this is the second son who has been evicted from his village … I worry that my other sons and the other young men who call me grandma will message me tell me the same horrid news. Decent work is scarce, where are they going to find work the work they are trained for? Once their employer knows they are gay they will be fired and harassed and forced to move again. They are disowned and shunned by their families. This is common for GLBT in Africa.

ENVISION PEACE, HARMONY, AND LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE.

As peacemakers we should affirm peace and harmony for ALL people.

Children are the future and we must work together to make a clear pathway for them, all of them, this includes GLBT.  Human rights-are-human rights, however unpopular a group is and we must stand up for them. My Ugandan GLBT family members are wonderful men, educated and full dreams and hope and promise, what they need now is help through laws and legislation that will not violate their constitution. They need allies and friends and leaders and policymakers who will protect, listen and represent their needs issues and not promote stigmatization and prejudice.  

Lawmakers, policymakers’ movers and shakers; one and all need to act with both reason and evidence and recognize equality and human rights and work to outlaw discrimination, period. Everyone should want laws that will protect every citizen, not harm them. Everyone should work together to make a secure place in the future for the children: Children are the future and we must work together to make a clear pathway for them, all of them and this must, absolutely must include GLBT.

ENVISION PEACE, HARMONY, AND LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE.

As peacemakers we should affirm peace and harmony for ALL people.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu said “Let us come together and be one; let us be people of peace; let us be people of harmony.” His words should be a reminder to all of us that our personal world is ours to shape, that as individuals we should gather together to work for peace; even as a private individual we are ambassadors to the global community and we have a responsibility to be a person of peace. 

As a person of peace we have the responsibility to listen to each other; to learn from each other; to share our knowledge with openness, honesty and kindness. Being an ambassador of peace is a great responsibility but it must be done; we need more bakers of bread than arms sellers. We live together on this planet. Let us be one community; let’s assist and support each other in peace and love every day and let our kindness ripple out to bless others.
