#1 Ending Racial/Cultural Ignorance
The fact that they sent attack dogs to wound Native Americans -including some children and a pregnant woman -to try to get them to stop protesting is deeply sickening.
And now, commentary from Solange Knowles:
#2 Respect the Sanctity of Animal Life and They Will Return the Favor
A 12 year-old girl in Ethiopia was abducted and beaten by a group of men with plans to force marriage upon her. Sadly, many girls must face this terrible fate, as over 70% of girls are forced into marriage in Ethiopia. Luckily, she had some unlikely guardian angels looking over her.
Sgt. Wondimu Wedajo was at the scene of her rescue. "They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest," Wondimu said. “If the lions had not come to her rescue, then it could have been much worse. Often these young girls are raped and severely beaten to force them to accept the marriage," he said. The abductors really didn't have a choice when they saw a bunch of lions surrounding her and ran for the hills. But the lions comforted her until help came."
#3 We Are All SOULS -Transcended from Heaven
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them" -Mother Teresa
Saw this image and I found it such a stark contrast. How often is it in this culture/society/world that we are expected to look to men of recent past -men of power and privilege -men of learning and good breeding -as the epitome of what mankind has to shoot for. And how often is it that the grace, beauty, and divinity of ancient souls -including women -are lost and never looked to as a totem of true virtue. Why are divine souls being forced to conform to demeaning and base qualities no human was ever intended to posses. We were intended for stars -not monuments.
