We are the Solution

I want to thank everyone who participated with me during the 21 day fast. I heard from many of you around the world and it really inspired me to complete the fast with ease and much contemplation. Now 39 days since I started the fast, I am inspired to make a personal commitment to continue fasting, indefinitely, to create a shift around world hunger and to end children dying from starvation at a time when we have so many resources around the world.

My goal is to end the hunger crisis by the year 2013. In order for this bold action to become a reality, it will take the global family joining with me. I am inviting everyone to fast every Wednesday, to give power to our conviction, until our goal is met. Let us, humanity, hold the collective vision to end world hunger and to hold each other AND our global leadership (political, military, corporate and religious) accountable for being PEACE in Action.

My first goal is to begin to establish a continuous stream of information regarding hunger and poverty in the USA and abroad. For this I invite you to share articles and research you come across that can add to our knowledge bank. Why? Because, “You cannot change what you do not know!”

My second goal is to give voice to the voiceless by speaking out, creating forums for discussion that will lead to PEACE in Action, and to engage our global family to be creative problem solvers, to think outside the box and create the solutions that will put an end to poverty and starvation by 2013.

From the Trail of Dreams Walk-A-Long Vision: Following in the path of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others, if I may be so bold, I am in agreement with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, "Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts." I also agree that nonviolence creates, "a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation." And that, "Sooner or later, all the peoples of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace."

I am also aware that we cannot change the things of which we are not aware. And, that so many people in our communities are unaware of the vast number of atrocities born of human rights and ecological violations affecting our human family. If we are to create a "powerful moral force which makes for social transformation," then we must bring the injustices affecting our human family to the masses. We must have the courage to lift the scab and allow the wounds to be witnessed in a loving and compassionate space where we ALL are represented and walk together to fashion an evolved humanity.

Let us not only talk the talk, let us boldly walk the talk!! Ordinary people showing up to be a demonstration of a deep human commitment to peace, justice, equality through compassionate co-sharing of human rights and responsibilities. We are our sisters and brothers keepers, and with every thought, every dream and every action (even the most minute) each of us affects the lives of people and Mother Earth everywhere. We must lift the scab that hides the condition of many of the world's communities ripped apart by violence and oppression, including those here at home, and bare the human condition to the world.

Poverty is one of the worse forms of violence in a world full or resources !

Let US be the CHANGE!
